The PhD program 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 companies, governmental organizations, and the society in general. Scientific collaboration of DEIB with prestigious research institutes abroad facilitates the entrance into the world of international research through meetings with scientists, common research, and visits to laboratories worldwide.
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 or academic research.
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 http://www.dottorato.polimi.it/en/looking-for-a-phd/call-for-positions-and-scholarships/ for more details).
