TTTC's E.J. McCluskey Doctoral Thesis Award

A Ph.D. in Computer and Control Engineering at the Politecnico di Torino is the winner of the European phase of “TTTC's E.J. McCluskey Doctoral Thesis Award.” The award aims to promote the most impactful work in the field of testing and fault tolerance of electronic devices, and to ensure visibility and interaction with the international scientific community.

Corrado De Sio, who received his Ph.D. in Computer and Control Engineering from the Politecnico di Torino in 2023, won the European phase of the semifinals. The semifinals are held on a regional basis at the world's major testing conferences, and the finals will be held during the International Test Conference, in San Diego, Nov. 3-8, 2024, where the winners of the four semifinals will compete for the final award.

The European competition, held May 20-24 during the 29th edition of the IEEE European Test Symposium, in The Hague, Netherlands was won by Corrado De Sio with his thesis “Toward Fault-Tolerant Applications on Reconfigurable Systems-on-Chip”, the result of his doctoral period under the supervision of Prof. Luca Sterpone at the Politecnico di Torino.

During his three-year doctoral program, Corrado De Sio, spent research periods at the European Space Research and Technology Center (ESTEC) of the European Space Agency and is currently a PostDoc in the CAD & Reliability Group at the Dipartimento di Automatica e Informatica of Politecnico di Torino.

The Test Technology Technical Community (TTTC) is a voluntary-based professional organization sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society. The objectives of the TTTC are to contribute to the professional development of its members by assisting them in solving test-related engineering problems while promoting the advancement of the state of the art in the fields of testing and diagnosis of electronic circuits and systems.

Meeting with PhD students in Computer and Control Engineering

The Department and the Ph.D. Academic Board are happy to invite you to an event to meet the new Ph.D. students and discuss the Ph.D. program in Computer and Control Engineering, which will be held on:

March 12, from 4 pm to 6 pm, in Sala “Luigi Ciminiera” (on the fifth floor of the DAUIN)

The event is meant not only to introduce each Ph.D. student and create connections that will hopefully be helpful throughout their path but also to present initiatives being carried out by the Academic Board of the Ph.D. program and the Department.  

Moreover, it will be an opportunity to have an informal discussion about expectations regarding the Ph.D. period at the Department and collect possible requests and needs. 

We plan to have short presentations by Prof. Luca Sterpone (Head of the Department) and Prof. Fabrizio Lamberti (Coordinator of the Ph.D. program), followed by a panel discussion and, in the end, time for networking with some refreshments. 

Research proposals 40th cycle

A list of the research proposals that are currently available for prospective students of the 40th cycle is available at this link. Prospective applicants are invited to directly contact the proposers to get more details.

Meeting on procedures for the final exam 36th cycle

On Monday December 4 at 9.00am, the Coordinator and the Vice-Coordinator of the PhD Program in Computer and Control Engineering will meet, in "Sala Ciminiera" room of DAUIN, the students of the 36th cycle and their tutors/co-tutors to illustrate the procedures for the preparation of the thesis and the final exam. 

Welcome meeting 39th cycle

On Friday November 8 at 9.00am, the Coordinator of the PhD Program in Computer and Control Engineering will meet, in "Sala Ciminiera" room of DAUIN, the students of the 39th cycle (sessions 1, 2 and 2bis) and their tutors/co-tutors to present the regulations and peculiarities of this path. 

DAUIN Ph.D. Day 2023

On Monday November 6, at the second floor of the Department of Control and Computer Engineering (DAUIN), the Ph.D. students enrolled in the 2nd and 3rd year of the Ph.D. programme in Computer and Control Engineering (36th and 37th cycle) will have the chance to present and discuss in person their research activities in the context of the 8th edition of the DAUIN Ph.D. Day. The event is an opportunity to illustrate the Ph.D. programme and disseminate the research activities carried out at DAUIN. Further details are provided on the webpage dedicated to the event
