The PhD is the highest level of study in Italy and is therefore only achievable by those who already hold a second level degree or equivalent.

The Department of Engineering of the University of Perugia offers a PhD course in Industrial and Information Engineering. For further information on the next Call for application for the admission to the PhD programs, for Fees and Contributions and the relative form, please refer to the Research Doctorates page of the University 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 fields of the Department. The Course is divided into two distinct curricula, Curriculum in Industrial Engineering and Curriculum in Information Engineering, but at the same time it provides shared training activities and seminars. The training and research activities encourage close collaboration both with teachers from other departments and with teachers from other Italian and foreign universities. The training activity, organized with the system of training credits, has the primary objective of developing students' attitudes to research.

Specific skills

  • Curriculum in Industrial Engineering: it provides expertise on research and new design methodologies to be applied in the fields of energy conversion systems, plants, mechanical design, mechanical technology, mechanical measurements and electrical engineering.
  • Curriculum in Information Engineering: it provides expertise on research and new project methodologies to be applied in the fields of electronics and electronic measurements, signal propagation, telecommunications, information technology and automation.
