    The Doctoral Program in Physics at Politecnico di Milano aims at attracting bright students with a good scientific background and a clear interest towards the development and applications of new ideas and technologies. It offers a wide range of opportunities in the fields of advanced applied physics, such as photonics and optoelectronics (lasers, ultrafast optics), biomedical optics (optical tomography), vacuum technologies (thin film depositions), material technologies (microelectronics and nanotechnologies, micromechanical processing), and advanced instrumentation (electronic and atomic microscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance). Scientific education and training to develop general research abilities in all areas of applied physics is increasingly needed by advanced technological companies. Through a general education in the basic areas of applied physics and a specific knowledge in condensed matter physics, as well as optics and lasers, the PhD Program aims at the development of an experimental approach to problem solving techniques and at the attainment of a high level of professional qualification.

    • Up to 10 off the 30 mandatory credits can be obtained choosing among PhD courses of type A or B, or among other courses provided by other PhD Programmes at Politecnico
    • If the supervisor and the tutor find it useful or necessary that the candidate attends preparatory courses (chosen among the activated courses at the Politecnico di Milano) the Board of Professors of the PhD Programme may assign some extra‐credits to be acquired to complete the training path. The credits acquired in this way will be considered as additional, in relation to the mandatory credits to be acquired with the PhD courses.

    For the three-year duration of their studies, PhD candidates may be supported by scholarships.

    Scholarships vary from € 1000 to € 1500, the amount depends on the proposed research topic. Scholarship holders receive a tuition fees waiver; they will have to pay a small administrative fee for registration (€ 185,58 per year).

    Those having benefited from a scholarship for a Ph.D. course, even partially, may not apply for a second time.
