PhD Programme in Advanced-Systems Engineering
The Free University of Bozen-Bolzano
(unibz) was founded in 1997 as a multilingual, internationally oriented institution. The university promotes the free exchange of ideas and scientific knowledge, linking itself to the European humanities tradition and laying the foundations for its society by promoting respect for democratic principles.

The Free University of Bozen - Bolzano champions research at the highest of levels, is committed to excellence and the advancement of knowledge through critical and independent scholarship and values freedom to push the frontiers of knowledge forward. Research projects which are interdisciplinary, international or which have local relevance are particularly encouraged. In this respect, unibz endorses research, and is especially committed to promoting young researchers.
A public competition for the allocation of PhD-positions in Advanced-Systems Engineering
is announced, for:
- 8 positions: 6 will be covered by scholarship, 2 places without scholarship;
This PhD Research Programme lasts three years during which the PhD students will actively attend the teaching and scientific activities. PhD students have the unique opportunity to benefit from the special multilingual environment that the University offers, which include various events in Italian, German or other languages (seminars, optional courses, social events, etc.). The PhD programme comprises lectures and research activities that can be attended at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano and at universities abroad. The time spent abroad can be at one of the foreign universities with which this University has an agreement or at other universities or research centres.
: 3 years
This international PhD programme trains a new generation of researchers who focus on Mechanical and Manufacturing Systems, Automation and Electronic Systems and Computer Systems to carry out independent research in the areas of Advanced-Systems Engineering and to give them the opportunity to transfer and exchange knowledge with national and international research centres and industries.
The three-year PhD programme focuses on the study and development of advanced and intelligent systems through an interdisciplinary approach that responds to recent technological developments (e.g., Cyber-Physical-Systems, Industry 4.0, Internet of Things) by integrating the disciplines of mechanical engineering, manufacturing engineering, information engineering and computer science. They are supported by specific skills in mathematics and artificial intelligence.
