As provided for in the call for application, admission to PhD programmes is granted to those who pass a competitive selection procedure. The selection is based on the evaluation of candidates' titles and interview. Their competences are assessed both verifying their academic and scientific resume and by means of a mandatory interview.
In order to take part to the selection procedure, Politecnico di Torino requires applicants to hold a title of Master of Science along with an internationally recognised certificate of English language knowledge.
In the case the title is awarded in Italy: the applicant must obtain a minimum graduation mark or grade point average (GPA).
In the case the title is awarded in a foreign university: the applicant must present GRE General Test certificate.
The selection procedure for admission in PhD programmes is divided in two separate sessions, the spring session and the summer session.
