The objective of the PhD Programme is to train researchers expert in the materials science field.
In recent years, Materials Science/Engineering has undergone significant worldwide development, due to the large use of materials with particular properties suited for various applications, including, among others, construction, automotives, electronics, and sensors.
It is important to form researchers who possess a balance of basic theoretical knowledge and applied skills, as this is what is now required from industries operating with increasingly advanced technologies and a constant perspective on innovation. Materials Science is present in different fields, such as chemistry, physics, electronics, applied mathematics, and crystallography. The Faculty of Mathematical, Physical and Natural Sciences within Sapienza University of Rome boasts several scientific excellencies in such fields, and is therefore the natural host for the PhD Programme in Materials Science.
