Alumni of the PhD programme in Civil Engineering and Architecture

  Home dottorato

  Home PhD programme

107 students since 1999, 83% of which have been funded: 59% by the University, 16% by the tutor, 8% by other Administrations and Companies. 50% of the Alumni are Scholars and Academics, 25% are Employees and executives in private and public companies, 18% are freelancers, 7% are Civil Servants.
The PhD programme started in 2000 (15th Cycle) under the name of PhD programme in Civil Engineering. Since 2014 (29th Cycle) the new name has become PhD programme in Civil Engineering and Architecture.
The Geotechnical Colleagues, currently mainly active in the Thematic Structural and Geotechnical Engineering,  have been enrolled in another PhD programme in Geotechnical Engineering, 17th-27th Cycles (26th Cycle was not activated).
Many Colleagues Architects, currently active in the Thematic Architecture and Urban Planning, have been enrolled in another PhD programme in Shapes and Structures of Architecture, 21st-28th Cycle.
The Alumni section is managed by Prof. Andrea Maranzoni, the senior Alumnus (16th Cycle) in service as Associate Professor at the DIA.
