PhD Program in Systems Science
Coordinator: Alberto Bemporad
The Systems Science Ph.D. program typically lasts for three years and may be extended to four years. In the first year, students are required to complete a set of courses that cover at least 150 teaching hours. The study plan is selected together with the Ph.D. supervisor to meet the specific requirements of the planned research activitities.
Upon completion of the first year, Ph.D. students are required to dedicate themselves full-time to their research. They are also encouraged to spend part of their studies abroad, either via the Erasmus+ framework or through customized mobility agreements. Throughout the duration of the program, students have the opportunity to meet with leading researchers from around the world who visit IMT School to present their work in seminar series or as visiting scholars.
