Programme overview


The new international PhD course in Strategic Engineering is promoted by the Department of Economics (DIEC) in collaboration with some of the best international universities focused on the new discipline called Strategic Engineering, and it is the natural extension of the first LM course in Strategic Engineering in Italy, activated by the University of Genoa.
The idea is to create new scientists and engineers able to design, develop, use and finalize new solutions that guarantee a strategic advantage in the decision-making process.
PhD students will focus on developing a combined use of Modeling, Simulation, Algorithms, Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence closely related to Big Data, to support Decision Makers in a wide range of applications, such as logistics and transportation, telecommunications, defense, finance, medical sciences and biotechnology. The strongly interdisciplinary nature of the course is highlighted.

Learning objectives

The International PhD Program in Strategic Engineering represents a New PhD with a specific Program to create experts skilled in creating solutions based on most innovative methodologies related to Strategic Engineering.
