The common objective of the different curricula is to train experts with a high scientific profile, able to operate in the research and development of various areas of Industrial Engineering.
At the beginning of their 1st year, PhD students have to choose their curriculum and one or more tutors. Moreover, each student has to present a research project, that must be approved by the Curriculum Council.
At the end of each year, PhD students have to present their activities and results to the Curriculum Council: the quality of their research is evaluated and the Council may admit them or not to the next year.
Furthermore, PhD students must attend courses, at least for 60 hours in their 1st year, among those offered by the “Leonardo da Vinci School of Engineering” or by the University of Pisa.
The courses to be joined are chosen by each student together with the tutor(s) and must be approved by the Curriculum Council.
Students usually attend international conferences and schools. Research stages at other Universities or Research Centers in Italy and abroad are strongly encouraged.
The PhDIndustrial Engineering degree at University of Pisa is given, normally after three years, in recognition of the acquired knowledge and of the high level and originality of the carried out research activities, and upon the presentation of a written thesis, usually written in English.
