Scientific collaboration of DEIB with prestigious research institutes all over the world, facilitates the entrance into the international research environment through meetings with scientists, common research activities, 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 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. After admission, each PhD student chooses a research Advisor and a Professor of the Doctoral Board as a Tutor. Study activities consist of courses and individually guided study. Advanced courses (all in English) reserved for doctoral students bring the attendants to the frontiers of knowledge in those sectors where DEIB’s research is most active. Specific courses on relevant subjects are organized yearly by various national and international schools and offered to our PhD students.
