Profile of the programme There are no formal courses and the cycle is achieved after the preparation of a PhD thesis, during a minimum time period of 3 years, followed by its defense in a public oral examination. The single course unit every year is the “Thesis in Mechanical Engineering”, providing 60 ECTS credits, and the PhD degree is given when the student achieves 180 ECTS and successfully passes the final examination
The general objectives of the cycle are: (a) to prepare the student for taking on research in a theme of the area of Mechanical Engineering; (b) to carry out a significant amount of original investigation work which has contributed to enlarge the state of the art in a particular domain and part of which has been or might be published in scientific journals and conferences.
Key learning outcomes At the end of the course the student is able to carry out, autonomously, research in a theme pertaining to the area of Mechanical Engineering. The research may be of theoretical, experimental or computational basis and is supervised by a professor of the Department
The student will be able present orally the results of his research to varied audiences, in scientific conferences or in more restricted workshops for specialized public
The student will be able to explain in writing the result of his research, in papers submitted for publication to specialized scientific journals
