The PhD is the highest level of degree in Italy, or third-level degree, and is therefore achievable only by those who already have a second-level or equivalent degree. The Department of Engineering of the University of Perugia offers a PhD Course in Industrial and Information Engineering. For information on the Calls, Fees, Fellowships, and related forms, please refer to the PhD page of the University of Perugia portal.

 

DOCTORATE IN INDUSTRIAL AND INFORMATION ENGINEERING

Description and objectives of the course

The PhD Course in Industrial and Information Engineering aims to study and develop new models and technologies in the various scientific sectors the Department covers. The course is divided into two distinct curricula, Curriculum in Industrial Engineering and Curriculum in Information Engineering, but at the same time, it offers common training and seminar activities. The training and research activities foster close collaboration with professors of other departments and other Italian and foreign universities. The training activity, organized in credits (CF - crediti formativi), has the primary objective of developing the research attitudes of Doctoral students.

Specific Competences

  • The Curriculum in Industrial Engineering provides skills on research and new design methodologies specifically oriented toward the fields of energy systems, industrial plants, mechanical design, mechanical technology, mechanical measurements, and electrical engineering.
  • The Curriculum in Information Engineering provides skills on research and new design methodologies specifically oriented toward the fields of electronics, electronic measurements, signal propagation, telecommunications, computer science, and automation.
