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, from the molecular and the cellular levels to living organisms up to biomedical systems, 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, with which close collaboration are in place.
Students develop their PhD research programs 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.
