Description


The PhD in Electronics and Computer Engineering aims at providing the students with skills, competences and methods which allow them the ability to conceive, design adapt and perform a high level scientific research project, according to internationally recognized quality and innovation parameters.

The specific domain of this course is Electronics and Computer Engineering, including the following scientific areas:
-Automation, Control and Robotics,
-Power Electronics and Embedded Systems
-Instrumentation, Sensors and Actuators
-Microtechnologies and Microsystems
-Telecommunication Systems and Services.

The conclusion of this PhD implies a curricular component (doctoral course) and a dissertation. The course is comprised by transversal Curricular Units (CU), a dissertation planning CU and advanced training CUs, in a total of 60 ECTS.

The presentation of each edition of the PhD course will define the list of final CU?s.

Access to higher education


The conclusion of this Doctoral degree allows the realization of research activity at post-doctoral level
