Educational Plan

This Course entails an overall study effort corresponding to at least 180 Doctorate Formative Credits (DFC), subdivided in at least 30 DFC for seminars and 150 DFC for research activity.

The seminars offered by the Course consist in:

  • “Scientific English” seminars (10 DFC), strongly recommended to all the PhD students;
  • the other seminars (20 DFC) may be selected by the PhD students based on their research activities.

Each PhD student is required to collect at least 10 DFC per year.

The total amount of DFC can be reached also by attending seminars organized by other PhD Courses, for a maximum overall amount of 5 DFC, with suitable topics approved by the Tutor, and by providing a certificate of attendance.

Each candidate performs research activity followed by a Tutor, who supervises the research project and has the responsibility of the effectiveness of the plan.

Tutors involve PhD students in relevant research projects, as well as in research contracts with public institutions and private companies.
