The Doctoral Course in Materials Engineering from Politecnico Di Milano covers the following areas: polymers and composites; concretes and ceramics; metals; biomaterials and materials for biomedical applications; processing and characterization of advanced metallic alloys; corrosion and durability of materials; innovative materials for civil and industrial engineering; materials characterization (microscopies, scattering, spectroscopy); modelling and theoretical approaches to the study of materials structure and properties; micro- and nanostructured materials; functional materials for applications in photonic, electronic and sensors; surface engineering and advanced coatings; materials for industrial design; meta-materials; transformation of materials; material for Cultural Heritage.
The Doctoral program is characterized by high flexibility to enable the students to develop their research activity in different thematic areas. For this reason each student may submit a personalized study plan to the Faculty. The Lectures offered deal with theoretical, experimental and modelling aspects. Advanced methods for materials preparation and characterization, ranging from mechanical tests, physical properties determination, to chemical and structural analysis, will be presented and made available. Several Courses include workshops and seminars, with the participation of invited internationally celebrated speakers. During the PhD Course the attendance of the students to Conferences and International Schools is strongly encouraged. Students can use state of the art facilities for materials synthesis, processing and characterization available at the Politecnico di Milano or in other research laboratories. The research activities related to the PhD theses develop with a full-time commitment along the three years of the PhD Program. Stages in industries or in laboratories in Italy or abroad are offered.
Several specialized curricula are offered to cope with the growing demandof the industrial world for: i) innovation in the production, processing, application and conservation of traditional materials; ii) development of innovative materials for the production of new goods, devices, technologies. The skills acquired through the courses, the research work and the teaching activity assure an adequate preparation to the academic career.
