  • Fusion Engineering PhD for integrated studies on the DTT Divertor

Phd in Fusion Engineering with topic: Integrated physics and engineering aspects of a divertor: the case study of the Divertor Tokamak Test (DTT). 

General 

The PhD program in Engineering for Energy and Environment aims to provide a high level of training to a select number of young graduates to make them competitive on a national and international level in private companies with high technological contents, research centers and universities. The main objective of the program (which is structured in two curricula, Energy and engineering systems and Biosystems and environment) is to provide an interdisciplinary view of engineering problems in the energy and environment scientific areas, characterized by a high technological development. The research activities will be devoted to the study of new engineering solutions, novel processing techniques and innovative research methodologies, with a focus on their technology transfer. Students will be engaged in training activities and scientific research in the program subjects, with particular reference to technologies for thermonuclear fusion, energy conversion processes, energy storage, environmental issues, innovations in the fields of mechanical engineering, also in agriculture, and of sensors, biosystems and agricultural issues, with regard to primary production and environmental aspects. The work of the PhD students will be coordinated by the members of the board already active in national and international industrial collaborations and research projects, in innovative and relevant topics, such as hydrogen technologies, renewable energy, biomass, biosystems and thermonuclear fusion

Admission is also open to university students who will finish their MS
degree by October, 31th, 2021. In such cases admission will be
“conditional”. Failure to obtain the degree by that date will result in
forfeiture of admission to the doctoral course. If the candidate is the
winner, he will be admitted and enrolled "with reserve" and must submit,
by 31 October 2021, via e-mail (dottorati@unitus.it), the following
documentation:
- if the degree is obtained in Italy, a self-certification relating to the
achievement of the degree;
- if the qualification is obtained abroad,
• if an Italian citizen: a self-certification relating to the achievement of
the degree, the model of which will be available on the web page
reserved for PhDs, with a copy of a valid identity document attached;
• if EU citizen or non-EU citizen: a certificate or equivalent document
for the achievement of the qualification, in English (eg Diploma
supplement).
For graduating applicants, the score reserved for the graduation
evaluation will be replaced by the evaluation of the average of the exams.
Self-certification (or certification in case of Non-EU students) should
state the name of the awarding University, award date, grade and type of
qualification (“vecchio ordinamento”, “Specialistica”/“magistrale”) and
a copy of a valid identity document.
Candidates who do not meet the admission requirements at the time of
submitting their application must indicate the date by which they expect
to obtain the required qualification
