The PhD Course in Information Technology (IT) is organized within the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria (DEIB) and offers the opportunity to develop a PhD thesis in the research areas of Computer Science and Engineering, Electronics, Systems and Control, Telecommunications.

Nowadays these fields of research are of enormous scientific and technical interest to both industry, governmental organizations, and to the society in general. Scientific collaboration of DEIB with prestigious research institutes in Europe, the United States and elsewhere, facilitates the entrance into the world of international research through meetings with scientists and visits to foreign laboratories.

Intense industrial collaboration of DEIB in application research allows the doctoral student to become acquainted with the activities of technologically advanced companies, thus acquiring the necessary elements for an informed choice between a career in industrial research and in universities.

The IT Doctoral Program enrolls, every year, an average of 60 students, mostly supported by scholarships from public institutions and private companies. Each year, a call for application to PhD positions and scholarships is issued around April (see related links for more details).
