The Ph.D. programme in BioRobotics aims at educating highly competent researchers with the potential to be leaders in this area. The students will be educated in a stimulating and multidisciplinary environment, both through high level courses and through a demanding, creative and original research work. Doctoral research projects will be carried on in very well equipped, state-of-the-art laboratories (in such fields as bio-robotics, micro- and nano-technology, biomimetics, prosthetics) and through personal and team work performed under the supervision of a committed full-time faculty. The students will investigate how biological systems work from an engineering viewpoint, and will make use of such knowledge to pursue challenging research projects aimed at modeling, designing and building novel components and systems for biomedical applications, such as surgery and rehabilitation. The accomplishments of the students will be assessed by the number of papers published in peer reviewed international journals and by the number of patents filed. At the end of the Ph.D. programme, students will possess solid scientific and engineering skills, the ability to conceive and carry out original research projects, and an autonomous entrepreneurship spirit. Students are admitted to Ph.D. in BioRobotics further to a successful entrance examination. Eligible applicants must hold a Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree or equivalent title. Undergraduate students may also apply if they graduate before the beginning of the Course. The Ph.D. Programme in BioRobotics is a three-year program of advanced studies and supervised research; after the end of the Programme, the Diploma di Perfezionamento is conferred to students who have fulfilled the didactic requirement and passed a final examination with thesis dissertation; the Diploma di Perfezionamento is the equivalent of a Ph.D degree.
