Educational goals

The PhD Programme provides third level training designed for young researchers and professionals who will be able to design, monitor and manage applied and basic research in all disciplines related to the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering. In particular, the course focuses on various issues of great interest for innovative content and multidisciplinarity, such as Advanced Materials, Applied Mechanics, Logistics and Production Systems, Energetics, Heat Transfer, Thermodynamics, Multi-Phase Fluid Dynamics, Mechanical Technologies, Systems and Technologies for Human and Environmental Health and Wealth, with applications in all areas of industrial, environmental and biomedical science and engineering.

The scientific and technical operational independence is acquired through academic research, either application-oriented, carried out in collaboration with private and public companies, or focused on the scientific development of basic technologies for industrial innovation-oriented and sponsored by institutional funding bodies such as the Ministry of Scientific and Technological Research and the European Research Council.

From a.y. 2022/2023 the PhD Programme is organized in five (5) curricula:
