To this end, the students have access both to top-level education and to a network of collaborations within the academic and industrial worlds.
The two foremost teaching objectives of the Chemistry and Material Science course at University of Pisa are:
- the PhD student will acquire a deep and robust knowledge of the theoretical and experimental methodologies and of computational and advanced instrumental techniques for the study of molecular systems and nanomaterials;
- the development of the capacity to do research independently but at the same time in a team in an international network.
The DSCM program lasts three years.
All the courses offered by Chemistry and Materials Science at University of Pisa are in English and will be delivered by outstanding researchers, working in the field of Chemical and Materials Science.
Starting from the II year, the teaching aspect will change from knowledge acquisition to the development of scientific independence. To this end, whenever possible, each PhD student will be encouraged to perform part of the research in laboratories outside DCCI, either in the form of short stages or for longer periods abroad (op to one year).
The main aim of these exchanges will be to experience different working environments and methods and instrumentations not available at DCCI and to stimulate the personal ability of an autonomous work in a new context.
The PhD student will regularly report to the Board of DSCM on the progresses of the project and, at the end of the third year, present a written PhD thesis.
This is preliminarily reviewed by two external referees and, after their approval, it will be submitted to the Faculty Board.
After a positive evaluation, the thesis undergoes public defence in front of a Board composed by both internal and external experts.
