The PhD programme in Mechanical Engineering has the goal of forming researchers and professionals who are able to carry out advanced research & development activities in the field of system and structural mechanics, mechanics of controlled devices, machines and fluids. PhD education focuses on functional and structural design, control of machines and machine elements, mechanical system analysis in a broad sense, and their application in the industrial sector.
During the programme, students attend courses on theoretical methodologies, numerical instruments and experimental techniques suitable to the understanding of the physical phenomena and their interpretation. The programme offers III-level courses to improve specialized knowledge in the field.
PhD programme promotes international experiences, organizing secondments at the foreign universities and research centres which collaborate with the concerned Department (DIMEAS: Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering), promoting the attendance in international congresses, and offering seminars or excellence courses given by renowned international scholars.
