The PhD Course is part of the research and educational program offered at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and comprises five key areas, i.e., Hydraulic Engineering; Hydrology, Hydraulic Structures, Water Resources and Coastal Engineering; Environmental Technologies; Transport Infrastructures; and Geomatics.

Classes and research activities are designed to integrate qualitative process identification, mathematical treatment and modeling according to increasing levels of complexity, and presentation and design of ensuing applications and implications to engineering problems and scenarios.

Career Opportunities
A PhD in Environmental and Infrastructure Engineering provides highly qualified personnel for key positions and roles in research agencies, Public Bodies and Authorities involved in environmental policies, engineering companies, and industry related engineering applications.


The PhD programme aims at providing high level skills in the fields covered such as fluid mechanics, hydraulics, hydrology, hydrogeology and water resources, environmental technologies for water, soil and atmosphere, transportation technologies and risk management and mitigation, geodesy and geomatics, surveying, data analysis, archiving and representation. Candidates are required to follow doctoral-level courses which cover a broad spectrum of topics, ranging from general theoretical and methodological aspects to focused and specialized subjects.

Classes are chiefly grouped within the first three semesters of the programme. Candidates progressively develop their own research project and ideas, leading to their PhD dissertation. The PhD programme strongly and actively encourages active participation to scientific congresses, symposia and summer schools as well as research cooperation with international research institutions. All research and educational activities are jointly coordinated by the PhD Tutor and Advisor

Specific information concerning research areas can be requested at: Prof. Alberto Guadagnini ( Hydraulic Engineering Prof. Gianfranco Becciu ( Hydrology, Hydraulic Structures, Water Resources and Coastal Engineering Prof. Roberto Canziani ( Environmental Technologies Prof. Laura Scesi ( Transport Infrastructures Prof. Fernando Sansò ( Geomatics.


Access to Ph.D. programmes is by selection. The University selection call is launched annually for all Ph.D. programmes and published on the website.

A five year university degree equivalent to a second level Master's degree giving access to PhD programmes is required. An expert panel selects candidates based on their reaserch project proposal; curriculum vitae; motivation letter and recommendation letter(s).


For the three-year duration of their studies, PhDs can be supported by grants at a current monthly amount of 1000-1300 plus tuition fee waiver. The details are given in the Call for Admission
