The Doctoral (PhD) Programme in Bioengineering trains graduate students through a strong interdisciplinary education in engineering methodologies and technologies to develop research on biological systems and health sciences. Methods, devices, and systems are developed with a multidisciplinary approach, considering from the molecular and the cellular levels to complex living organisms, with the purposes of improving diagnosis and therapy as well as health and daily life structures and services.
These competences prepare PhD candidates to work inside a research group either in private or public context as well as in industry.
Students develop their PhD research programs in the most advanced topics currently ongoing at the Departments of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering (DEIB) and Chemistry, Materials and Chemical Engineering "Giulio Natta" (CMIC) at Politecnico di Milano. Stage periods in distinguished national and international research institutes are an essential feature of the student training.
