Dottorato di Ricerca (equivalent to a PhD)

The PhD in Mechanical Engineering has been designed to train engineers with a high cultural profile and involves a combination of research, technology and innovation.

Graduates of the PhD programme in Mechanical Engineering not only have the training and skills of the specialised graduate but are also able to independently lead and organise applied research projects. The PhD holder is therefore trained for careers in industry working in close contact with cutting-edge technologies and able to meet the double training requirements of companies and research institutions (which need highly qualified researchers) and universities.
