Organization of the PhD study track
The PhD educational goal is tipically obtained in a period of three years.
During the first year, PhD candidates attend courses specifically designed for the PhD track for a total of about one semester.
The second year is mainly dedicated to experimental laboratory activities and to the development of the PhD project.
Results are generally achieved during the third year, whose last semester is dedicated to prepare the final written dissertation (‘PhD Thesis’).
At the end of every year, PhD candidates have to submit a report to the PhD Board, which thoroughly reviews the yearly activities. The assessment is based on the originality and scientific value of the research, as well as the quality and results of the education track. The detailed rules and regulations of the PhD programme in Bioengineering can be found in the Study Program available at http://www.dottorato.polimi.it/en/phd-programmes/active-phd-programmes/bioengineering/
PhD candidates have to submit their annual study plan that is agreed by the Tutor and successively formally approved by the Coordinator of the PhD programme.
