Documents for students and tutors/co-tutors
The PhD program in Computer and Control Engineering has adopted internal rules and policies that integrate the University regulations on specific aspects that are not defined at a centralized level and pertain, in particular, the participation in the Academic Board, its composition and organizational procedures, the annual evaluation of students, and the appointment of tutors/co-tutors. Rules and policies are reviewed and updated upon solicitation and after proper discussion in the Academic Board. The reference document is available at this link.
The set of slides that are used in the welcome meetings organized for the students of each new cycle during which these internal rules and policies are illustrated are available at this link for the 38th cycle (meeting held on November 8, 2022 and later repeated for the extraordinary session), and at this link for the 39th cycle (meeting held on November 10, 2023 for students selected in sessions 1, 2 and 2bis).
The details of the yearly review process are described in the document available at this link (together with the administrative aspects available at this link). The PowerPoint template to be used by students for the annual review is available at this link.
The minimum requirements set by the Academic Board of the PhD program in Computer and Control Engineering and verified for the admission to the next year/to the final exam are illustrated in detail in the document available at link.
A document has also been created to illustrate the criteria defined by the Academic Board for the recognition of online courses.
Finally, a document is available that integrates the description of the procedure for the final exam defined at the University level with requirements and instructions specifically defined for the PhD program in Computer and Control Engineering. The document, which is available at this link, is complemented by a set of slides that are presented to the students who are close to the end of their path (on November 8, 2022 for the 35th cycle, on December 4, 2023 for the 36th cycle). The slides are available at this link for the 35th cycle and this link for the 36th cycle.
Each student and each tutor/co-tutor is required to know and comply with what reported in the above documentation.
Academic Board documentation
The Academic Board members of the PhD program in Computer and Control Engineering can access the minutes of the meetings and related documentation at this link. Authentication will be required using the official login credentials of the institutional Politecnico di Torino account.
Since few years, the PhD program in Computer and Control Engineering established several quality awards for the best students at the end of the second year (1200 euros) and third year (2500 euros). The guidelines defined by the Academic Board for the assignment of the awards are described in this document.
The beneficiaries of the 2023 awards for the 36th cycle are ARNAUDO Edoardo, COLOMBA Luca, DAGHERO Francesco, DE LORENZIS Federico, DE VIZIA Claudia, DELIGIANNIS Nikolaos, GUERRERO BALAGUERA Juan David, MARCEDDU Antonio Costantino; for the 35th cycle, the beneficiaries are BORZI’ Luigi, BRINGHENTI Daniele, CALANDRA Davide, DE SIO Corrado.
Students in the third year are invited to produce a video presenting their research results and their path. The videos produced since 2015 are collected at this link.
All the students who are completing the second and third year present the state of their research in the context of the PhD Day, formerly PhD Poster Day, organized at the Department of Control and Computer Engineering (DAUIN) with the support of Dr. Sarah Azimi, Dr. Alberto Cannavò, Dr. Fulvio Valenza and the Department administrative staff.
Each student prepares a poster (and possibly also a demo) and presents it during the event to colleagues, professors and invited attendees from industries, research centers, etc. The students who are completing the third year are also invited to prepare a video summarizing their activities.
