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 

Compared to other PhD programmes awarding the same title, this Physics programme is characterized by a focus on theoretical, experimental and computational aspects of physics of matters and complex systems.

It shall be noted that members of Academic Board are also members of two European Union flagships: “Graphene” and “Human Brain”. 

The Board often invites external experts to collaborate as co-tutors or thesis referees. Board members also have a wide network of relationships with several international research centres. PhD students are thus able to have a direct experience of the activities carried out in advanced experimental and computational laboratories, which represents an integration to departmental laboratories.

The course catalogue is divided in four major areas: 

  • Experimental Physics of Matter 
  • Theoretical Physics of Matter 
  • Physics of Complex Systems 
  • High Energy Physics

This programme is part of few educational networks comprising institutions of recognized excellence and it has hosted several students, taking part to co-tutelle programmes; many students take also part in exchange programmes based on bilateral agreements. Almost 50% of PhD scholarships are financed from external institutions.

Career

Students who obtained a PhD diploma in Physics from Politecnico di Torino – almost 150 – have always found a position in the world of work.
