With this Ph.D. program, we train young researchers in the field of sustainable use of resources in the production systems of energy, of buildings, in energy final utilization, in the development of products, and in manufacturing.

The admissions process aims at selecting candidates with an outstanding academic profile, a strong interest in the topics dealt with, and the ambition to develop a career in scientific research, either in academia or for private or public organizations.

The 3-year program includes training to strengthen specific skills and gain knowledge about the efficient and sustainable use of resources and energy in households and buildings, power generation, manufacturing processes, transport, and agriculture. Besides training, students will design a 3-year research project under the supervision of a team of lecturers and researchers aiming at exploring the field and providing an original contribution to science in the fields related to the Ph.D. program, such as energy production from renewable sources, thermophysics of buildings, biofuels and bioenergy, energy storage, environmental and industrial fluid mechanics, clean mobility and powertrains.

Given the interdisciplinary nature of the research carried out in the Faculty of Science and Technology, we welcome prospective candidates from various academic backgrounds. The ideal candidates are Engineering graduates, but the program is also suitable for Architecture, Physics, Maths, and Chemistry graduates.

Through these training activities, a PhD candidate can develop the skills to design, organize, and manage highly innovative basic and applied research projects. At the same time, students will also develop methodological rigor, the ability to interpret and disseminate results, the skills to deepen and develop their knowledge independently, and the ability to work in a group in an interdisciplinary context.

The Scientific Committee includes internationally renowned scientists from Italian and foreign Universities. The international research training and the skills developed during the doctoral program will help Ph.D. candidates meet their career aspirations, both inside and outside research institutions.
