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 

During the three years of the Course, the PhD students are involved in the study of the cultural aspects related to the Science and Technology of Materials, also with the help of ad hoc courses that are customized so to allow PhDs to master, at the end of the course, the knowledge of materials in terms of structure and properties, design, production and transformation processes, use, characterization techniques, corrosion and degradation, conservation, restoration and recycling, assembly for engineering purposes, industrial applications, biomedical applications, materials for the conversion, accumulation and conservation of energy, materials for environmental protection, materials for adsorption, heterogeneous catalysis, photocatalysis, photoelectrocatalysis, additive manufacturing. 

Emphasis is also given to the properties of materials surface (in relation to and in comparison with those of the bulk) and of the chemical and electrochemical reactions that take place there, of electrochemical processes and technologies, as well as of corrosion protection measures. 

In order to reach such objectives, experimental methods (advanced synthesis and characterization techniques) are mainly used along with the simulation and development of theoretical models.

Employment opportunities

The transversal nature of the competences of the PhDs in Materials Science and Technology offers professional opportunities in the fields of research (both public and private) and development in any area of industrial production, either in Italy or abroad. 

Some of the foreseen employment opportunities are:             

  • research and teaching in Italian/foreign Universities;             
  • research in Italian/foreign research centres (for instance, CNR);             
  • industrial sectors implying high-level expertizes in the research and development of innovative materials, as well as industrial production.
