THE VALUE OF A DOCTORAL RESERACH PROGRAMME
Doctoral education prepares for a variety of promising careers that are largely non-academic.
Doctoral graduates work in research and development, in businesses or as professional freelancers who bring added value, innovation and change management to many industries and service sectors. PhD holders address technological, societal, environmental and economic challenges with leadership skills and vision for the future. They solve problems within complex organizations, engaging in teamwork and using an interdisciplinary and systemic approach. At the Doctoral School of Politecnico di Torino, doctoral candidates consolidate their scientific and technological background by taking supplementary doctoral courses on soft skills. These quality and innovative courses help them boost their skills in order to meet the needs of businesses and address the new challenges of the society of the future.
