Research topics

The PhD Program in Electrical, Electronics and Communications Engineering involves a large number of faculty members and PhD students from various departments of Politecnico di Torino. This scientific community is active in a multi- and inter--disciplinary set of research activities, so that the specific topics that are available to prospective PhD candidates are very rich.

This page provides the entry point to browse the available Research Topics. For convenience, these can be browsed by discipline or by application field, using the menu on the right. Disciplines and Applications are listed below to provide a synoptic view.
