Educational goals

The PhD Course in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) aims at training scientists and engineers to design and develop innovative methodologies towards the design of systems, data processing, modeling, and applications, in the fields of electronic engineering, remote sensing, applied electromagnetics, information and communication engineering, and to conduct original research in these areas. Students are supported by supervisors, members of the Program Board, and scientific experts, performing highly and internationally recognized state-of-the-art research on the topics of the PhD Program. Students are individually assigned a specific research topic to be developed during the three-year course. The research carried out in the laboratories of the Department is supported by lectures and advanced educational seminars, taught by Italian and foreign experts. The PhD Program Board also strongly encourages traveling in order to attend schools, conferences and workshops, disseminate results of the Doctoral research, and carry out research in Universities and research centers. In particular the Curriculum in "Applied Electromagnetics" has the objective of providing students with innovative tools and methodologies aimed at the design, development, and manufacture of devices, circuits and systems able to operate in the range between industrial and optical frequencies; and specifically of antennas, circuits for harmonic and impulsive signals, biomedical applications of electromagnetic fields, free space and guided electromagnetic propagation, remote sensing and Earth observation. In this way, students are prepared to work in the fields of research and advanced innovation in which applied electromagnetics plays a key role. The Curriculum in "Electronic Engineering" aims at giving the students a high qualification in the design, modeling, and manufacturing of innovative electronic components and systems, their measurement techniques and the methodologies for quality control. To this end, the students work, according to the assigned research topic, in the areas of microelectronic devices and circuits, nanoelectronic and optoelectronic devices, analog and RF circuits, sensors and wireless sensor networks, bioelectronics, bioelectromagnetism and biomedical devices, architectures for embedded computing and digital systems, micro-and nano-electromechanical systems and the related technologies. The Curriculum in "Information and Communication Engineering" aims at forming engineers and researchers able to develop innovative methodologies in the field of information transmission, coding, signal processing and networking. Traditionally, the main research areas of the PhD course are: wired and wireless communication and transmission systems; signal processing techniques and methodologies; multimedia technologies and processing of multimedia signals; networking technologies, services and applications. More specifically, in the framework of the above mentioned areas, the main research topics currently investigated are: a) energy saving in telecommunication networks; b) systems for ultra wideband communications; c) new generation Telecommunication networks; d) computational intelligence; e) cognitive radio; f) sensor and vehicular networks; g) new models for personal data handling. The Curriculum in "Radar and Remote Sensing" has the goal of fostering the education of researchers and applied scientists, that are able to conceive and develop innovative methodologies for: (i) the design of both active and passive remote sensing sensors (with special reference to Radar and Lidar), and of complex systems for observation, environmental monitoring, surveillance and navigation; (ii) the processing of the information collected by such sensors and systems, with specific reference to Earth observation and monitoring of environment and human activities, as well as to the Physics of the atmosphere and to planetary exploration.
