The main goal of this programme is providing students with those competences required to carry out theoretical and experimental research and innovation activities in fields closely related to specific features characterizing the programme.
The programme focuses on promoting and developing both theoretical knowledge and practical applications, keeping in mind the varieties of professionals and researchers that this PhD programme aims at training, offering a wide range of interdisciplinary courses.
Usually, students acquire basic knowledge in the field attending II-level and III-level courses; subsequently, in order to improve their knowledge of specialised topics, students are provided with specific III-level courses offered by Politecnico and other external Institutions.
It is also provided the opportunity to attend courses organized in the framework of summer schools, seminars and congresses. Relevant experimental activities are provided, if coherent with the students’ career path. Eventually, during PhD training, students usually spend a period of research and study abroad at academic institutions or companies.
