Study Subject: Mechanical Engineering
Employer: PhD School of Politecnico di Milano
The Doctoral Programme in Mechanical Engineering is coordinated by the ‘Dipartimento di Meccanica’ – Department of Mechanical Engineering. It enrols slightly less than 10% of the total number of PhD students of the PhD School of Politecnico di Milano. In figures, it enrols an average number of 25 students every year, many of them supported by scholarships from public institutions and private companies. Each student is assigned a tutor, who is a member of the Doctoral Board, and a research supervisor, who is a professor of the Faculty. Educational activities consist of selected courses. Advanced courses (taught in English) dedicated to doctoral students and senior graduate students bring the attendants to the frontiers of knowledge in those research sectors where the Department of Mechanical Engineering excels and is most active.
Dedicated courses on relevant topics are organized yearly by various national and international schools, and offered to our PhD students. All lecturers are prominent at international level in their respective field of expertise.
The PhD students can carry out their study and research activities within the following major research areas.
The basic requirements are the following:
- Five years education at University level
- Knowledge of the English language at B2-level or higher
