OFFER DESCRIPTION

The primary objective of the PhD Programme is to acquire the necessary skills to carry out highly qualified research activities in the field of structural and environmental monitoring and management. This requires i) knowledge on civil, chemical, material and environmental engineering to understand models as well as their evolutionary key indicators and also ii) knowledge of the key enabling technologies offered by the information engineering, with in particular the new paradigms for the implementation of systems based on sensors miniaturization, wireless connectivity and Web of Things. Candidates from civil and environmental engineering will receive specific training on information engineering as detailed in ii) and vice versa those candidates coming from the fields of information engineering will receive main training on point i), with the objective of promoting a multidisciplinary competence to the PhD candidates as well as to improve the development of their soft skills.

Research fields:

  • Physical models (analytical and numerical), system identification
  • Structural mechanics
  • Fluid mechanics, hydrology and soil mechanics
  • Geomatics and autoID
  • Process safety and loss prevention
  • Remote sensing and earth observation systems
  • Climate change monitoring and control
  • Positioning systems
