The recent positive trend of the research in the MCF area, which sees several experimental devices ready to come into operation (JT-60SA), in an advanced status of construction (ITER) or in the design stage (e.g. DEMO, DTT), requires a significant increase in the number of experts in fusion science and technology in the coming years. This is also evidenced by the fact that the organization of the European fusion program - managed by the European consortium EUROfusion - puts a lot of emphasis on education and training programs in the field MCF.
For this reason, in the stream of the successful experience in coordinating the international doctoral networks LMP (Lisbon-Munich-Padua) and the joint doctoral program with Ghent University (cycles XXXIII-XXXV), starting October 1st 2020 (Cycle XXXVI), the PhD Programme in FSE will be jointly run by the Università di Padova and the Università di Napoli Federico II, with the support of a large network of national and international universities and research laboratories, which host leading experimental activities.
The teaching activity of the course addresses topics related to Fusion Science and Engineering. Specifically the following three Advanced Courses are offered: - AC1: Physics and Diagnostics of Plasmas - AC2: Plasma Control - AC3: Fusion Technologies
