    Educational Objectives and Research Activities
    The goal of this program is to prepare students with a sound cultural background, providing them with a high level of flexibility, open minded and in-depth cutting edge competences in specific fields. These students will be able to carry out, manage and disseminate independent theoretical and/or applied research activities at an international level. They will be able to design mathematical models aimed at defining and building complex Information Technology (IT) systems, develop innovative IT applications and transfer their knowledge to the private sector, thereby also contributing to strengthening the role played by Italian industrial organizations in the global economic scenario. Our Ph.D. program stresses an interdisciplinary approach that nowdays characterizes most of the advances researches worldwide.

    The Ph.D. program in Computer Science and Computational Mathematics offered by Università degli Studi dell’Insubria is jointly administered by Dipartimento di Scienze Teoriche ed Applicate (Department of Theoretical and Applied Sciences) and by Dipartimento di Scienze ed Alta Tecnologia (Department of Sciences and High Tecnology). The program is aimed at students interested in obtaining research positions in universities as well as in government or industrial research institutions. Normally, the Ph.D. program lasts three years; the defense can be postponed for an additional year, subject to approval by the Ph.D. Board. There are currently 9 available positions: 7 of of them come with a fellowship granted by our university, the remaining two have no associated grant. Additional grants might come from research projects supported by funding agencies and/or private companies. The program is articulated into two phases. The first 18 months are mainly devoted to attending courses and seminars at both Università degli Studi dell’Insubria or elsewhere (other universities, national or international PhD schools, etc.).  In this respect, the students have a significant amount of flexibility in building up their own study plan; attending courses at other Italian and foreign universities, is highly encouraged. The second 18 months are mainly devoted to independent research activity under the guidance of a supervisor. The program also financially encourages students and supervisors to plan towards longer term research visits to international research venues. The main outcome of a Ph.D. course of study is a Ph.D. dissertation collecting original research work carried out by the student. This will typically take the form of publications in international journals and/or proceedings of international research conferences. The dissertation will be defended in front of a defense jury made up of external experts

    NEWS: Our PhD program is partner of the “INdAM Doctoral Programme in Mathematics and/or Applications Cofunded
    by Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions” – INdAM-DP-COFUND-2015, of the EU Horizon 2020 Program.
