Dottorato di Ricerca

Insegnamenti di livello dottorale

The PhD School of the Politecnico di Milano offers a wide range of Programs, in all fields of Architecture, Engineering and Industrial Design. The individual PhD Programs provide curricula of education in and practice to research, specific to the different areas of applications covered. To complement the curricula of the individual programs, the PhD School itself offers a number of educational activities aimed at reinforcing the PhD candidates’ curricula with a number of soft and transferable skills.  

Participating in these initiatives adds value to the PhD careers. They develop the candidates’ creativity, the ability to communicate in qualified international academic, scientific and professional environments. They are trained in problem-solving, as well as in conflict- and failure-management. They get used to acquire information from different sources and synthesize the relevant knowledge, develop leadership and balance teamwork in the management and development of research under the adeguate principles of ethics. Emphasis is given to the cultural aspects characteristic of the scientific thought and to the frame of mind for research and innovation.

The courses offered are selected on a yearly basis with the objective of contributing to the development of the characteristic polytechnical culture, which is unifying of and transversal to the various PhD Programs. 

 

Opening Doctoral Education to external candidates

Starting 2019, Politecnico di Milano has established to open its doctoral courses to all interested external candidates. To be enrolled, candidates must register at the POLIMI website (www.polimi.it/onlineservices -> "Register") and then they will find in their online services webpage the function “Application for doctoral single courses”.

By selecting it, candidates will be asked to choose the course(s) of interest (up to 10 credits per year) and to upload a CV and a motivation letter.

Their request will be evaluated promptly. In case of positive evaluation (which depends also on the course slots availability), candidates will proceed with the registration and may start attending the course. After successful completion of the course training, the candidates will be able to download from the same website a certificate attesting the earned credits.

The registration fee amounts to 500,00 € / 5 credits. Selected categories (including Visiting PhDs, PhD candidates of Institutions with which agreements have been signed, and employees of companies which have signed a “Joint Research Center” agreement with POLIMI) will receive a fee waiver, and will be requested to pay only the cost of the stamp and the insurance: for the academic year 2018/2019 the total amount is 32.20€.
