The Department carries out research at the highest level in many areas of Engineering and Science areas related to Engineering, with partnerships and funding from European and international networks. These skills, in whole and in each of the areas, allow a high integration in large-scale projects of national and international research. The attention paid to technological issues and applications ensures an even more relevant role, of individuals and of the Department as a whole, in transferring innovation of processes and products to the world of manufacturing and services sectors in industry and public bodies.

Research Grants

The Research Grants are fellowships granted to conduct research, typically (but not necessarily) credited to researchers who have already earned a PhD, also with the aim of promoting the development of specific skills.

The public competitions for fellowship are issued by the Department every four months, tentatively in March, June, October. The grant lasts one year with the possibility of renewal.

The research areas are Applied Electronics, Civil Engineering, Computer Science and Automation, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, Physics and Chemistry. Research activities take place at the Department of Engineering, where all laboratories are situated.
