Our Ph.D. students are required to take at least 6 courses (each of at least 16h + exam) and to attend at least 3 series of seminars during their Ph.D. studies.

In addition to taking courses organized by our Ph.D. School, our students can take courses organised by other Ph.D. schools. In particular, our School has an agreement of “mutual opening” of the courses with the following schools:

  • Ph.D. School in Information Engineering (List of courses for a.y. 2020/2021 available here. Registration is mandatory and already open on-line for some courses.)
  • Ph.D. School in Data Science (List of courses available here – look for courses tagged “From: Data Science PhD”.)
  • Ph.D. School in Smart Computing (List of courses available here – it will be updated in January 2021.)

Our students can also attend courses of International Ph.D. Schools (please see below), to deepen their knowledge in specialised areas, and take (at most one of the) courses offered by the Master Degree in CS, if they need to strengthen their CS background.

Please note that the list of courses and seminar series chosen by the PhD student must be approved (beforehand) by the Ph.D. Committee, they have to satisfy the requirements  stated above and they have to cover different areas in order to broaden the knowledge of our students.
