A Ph.D. as a career opportunity
The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) is the highest degree in the academic system and it provides the necessary competence and skills to conduct high-level research at universities, public institutions or private organizations. It is also useful to pursue a career in the Public Administrations and to work as self-employed professionals.
Ph.D. candidates are “researchers in training” since their educational path is aimed at obtaining a degree but, at the same time, they are involved in the research activities conducted in the Departments. Therefore, because of these characteristics and in compliance with the guidelines shared at a European level, a Ph.D. programme allows to acquire methodological accuracy in scientific research, creativity, autonomy and ability to address and solve complex problems, as well as useful academic and business skills.
A Ph.D. programme at Politecnico di Torino is the right educational path for you if you intend to boost your training in a variety of research fields ranging from architecture to engineering, from design to basic sciences.
