General Information
Strategy and aims

This program stands out from doctoral programs offered in traditional areas of engineering through the development of crosscutting and trans-disciplinary competences in “engineering systems” that help explore solutions for complex industrial problems through project-oriented and project-based activities.

In order to achieve these objectives, the program emphasizes basic research in “engineering systems”, together with project-based activities in engineering design and advanced manufacturing. It brings together all branches of Mechanical Engineering, along with other scientific areas at IST, as well as in cooperation with strategic partners.
