Ph.D School in Engineering Science AA 23/24

Didactic offer of the PhD School in Engineering Science for academic year 2023/24

The structured didactic courses are open to everyone interested, including professors and PhD students of the previous cycles. During their first year of doctorate, PhD students are required to follow at least two courses chosen from those listed below (in agreement with their supervisor).The attendance will be checked by collecting signatures (by scanning a QR code) in the classroom and the PhD students are required to attend at least 75% of the course hours. The verification of the acquired knowledge will be carried out according to the procedures defined by each professor.

For organizational purposes, the students who are interested, in agreement with their supervisor, should contact the course professor through the registration to the Moodle web page of the course or in special cases through an e-mail.

The offered courses of the PhD school in Engineering Science are also open to PhD students coming from other universities. Since the credentials released from UNIVPM are necessary to enroll, internals will use their own credentials, while externals need to compile the module that can be found at appointing Prof. Nicola Paone as Structure Director and Davide Bevilacqua (PTA) as referent. The PhD student that fills out the module will receive an email with the credential to access web services necessary to access Moodle and to register the attendance.
