Training Program

Each PhD student should attend 80 hours of lectures by the end of the second year. The PhD Nanotecnology Program of the University of Trieste offers dedicated lectures (that should amount to a minimum of 40 hours), but there is also broader choice among Master courses available at the University and among lectures available to the Physics PhD program and to the Chemistry PhD program. The activity must be agreed with prof. A. Baraldi or prof. T. Da Ros.

 

During the three years of the program (in total over the three years) the student has to attend at least two Schools for PhD students, both organized by the PhD program in Nanotechnology or by other institutions, both at national or international levels.

 

The student should also spend at least 40 hours of training outside the research group, getting familiar with new techniques and/or methodlogies of interest for the research project.

 

Finally, a sum of at least 30 hours of scientific seminars should be attended.

 

Other activities:

- period abroad or in other Italian research institutions: max. 18 months in three years

- teaching activity: students can give lectures, laboratory support, seminars to master students for a maximum of 50 hours/year

 

Here below there is a detailed list of the courses specifically organized for the Nanotechnolgy PhD program for the Academic Year 2019/2020. Didactic materials (slides) can be found in the Moodle section.
