Overview

Why Politecnico? 

  • A large number of scholarships available
  • Scholarship amount: € 18.854,52 gross per year
  • Scholarships are increased by 50% for study periods abroad; 
  • An allowance is provided to all PhD students for mobility abroad;
  • Maternity leave paid
  • High quality research
  • International experience
  • Joint research activity with the non-academic sector 

Both of these aspects, joined together, aim to stimulate intellectual growth and to develop the ability to understand problems and to critically analyze solutions related to research, both basic and applied, in the aerospace field.

The training program includes the typical aerospace disciplines and extends over transversal topics and technologies, in order to provide the student with a complete scientific preparation.

The specific research carried out during the Ph.D. Aerospace Engineering program from Politecnico di Torino must be innovative and concern advanced problems in the aerospace field. During the activity, progress is constantly monitored by the advisor and periodically evaluated by the Academic Board. 

Furthermore, the development of part of the research activity at prestigious international universities is increasingly encouraged. Finally, the student must document the activity performed and the results achieved in the final thesis as well as in articles published in journals or presented at international conferences. 

Career

The aim of the Ph.D. program in Aerospace Engineering is to educate the students on the principles of science and technology in the aerospace sector, providing them with the essential tools to boost their future activity both in the scientific and technological research. 

The Ph.D. program prepares students not only to conduct high quality research but also to excel in a variety of different settings, including the production and management sector. 

At the end of the program, the Ph.D. has usually acquired the necessary skills and capabilities to handle a variety of activities, independently or in a team, and to communicate ideas and initiatives appropriately, both in Italian and in English, in a dynamic and international setting.
