Ph.D. Programme in Electronics, Telecommunications, and Information Technologies Engineering (ET-IT)

The ET-IT PhD Programme prepares young researchers to be part of both research teams or industrial R&D units, providing the ability to innovate, manage projects, and lead research groups. ET-IT deals with the research areas related with the Information and Communications Society. In particular, the scientific topics addressed by the Programme are Electronics, Electromagnetic Fields, and Telecommunications.

The ET-IT PhD Programme is developed by the DEI Department jointly with the Fondazione Bruno Kessler, an institute devoted to high quality research, with impact to market and society, based in Trento, Italy.  Each year DEI and FBK commit to fund at least six scholarships focused on the PhD Programme scientific areas

Internationalization

The Ph.D. Course ET-IT is internationally oriented. It is taught completely in English, in order to open its research groups to international students and to involve Professors from the major Universities around the world. To this aim, many bilateral agreements on learning activities have been signed with several European and non-European Universities (click here for a list).

These efforts increase dissemination of research outcomes and placement opportunities for our Ph.D. Students.

 

Research

Three main research areas are covered:

  • Electronics: study of devices, circuits and electronic systems, with specific emphasis on microelectronics, micro and nano-technologies, intelligent sensors, electronics for telecommunications, digital systems, electronic systems for implementation and monitoring, modern computing systems, both SW and HW.
  • Telecommunications: systems and networks, and associated components and devices. In this context, the Ph.D. program addresses issues related to the architectures of TLC systems and networks (wireless, cellular, fixed/mobile, terrestrial/satellite, wired and optical networks) as well as information technology such as multimedia applications and services, smart cities, smart grids, etc.
  • Electromagnetic fields: research activities related to microwaves and optical systems, antennas and propagation, and the theory of Electromagnetic fields applied to electronics and telecommunications systems and devices.

 

Learning program

ET-IT is taught completely in English and lasts 3 academic years.

The educational path is designed ad-hoc for each Candidate and must include:

  • attending to at least 180 hours of documented learning activities ;
  • spending a 6 months research secondment period abroad, hosted by a partner of the DEI Department;
  • attending to qualified international conferences;
  • submitting papers to international scientific publications.

In addition, over the 3 years, Ph.D. Candidates will be offered courses on soft skills, creativity skills, and English language .

The current list of courses for ET-IT Candidates is available here.

 

Occupational profile

The Ph.D. Graduate in ET-IT is a researcher able to be part of both research teams or industrial R&D units, with the ability to manage projects and lead a working group.
