The Ph.D. Course in Information Engineering is designed to prepare highly-qualified students for careers in cutting-edge areas of information and communication technology.
The Course aims to provide students with advanced technical and methodological skills - acquired by means of a multidisciplinary approach - as well as increase the students’ personal creativity through scientific research in key areas of information engineering. At the end of the course, the future researchers will have gained the scientific and operational expertise required to meet the challenges of the emerging information society.
The course aims to make students able to be part of research teams, and coordinators of research activities.
The training objectives will be reached upon:
◦completion of a higher education course with a multidisciplinary approach to all ICT applications;
◦achievement of the basic and/or specific skills necessary to conduct research in the subjects of the PhD course;
◦development of the competency for planning and organizing research considering the state of the art, the methodologies, the perspectives and the costs;
◦development of the ability to conduct research independently;
◦development of the ability to promote internationalization.
Admission to PhD programs is regulated by a public competition.
To be considered for admissions, applicants must hold a specialization / master's degree or a prior-to-reform master's degree (predating ministerial decree 509/99) or an appropriate qualification obtained from a foreign university, or expect to hold a master's degree by 31 October of the year of publication of the call.
