    Training objectives

    Training objectives

    The PhD in “Architecture, Industrial Design and Cultural Heritage” aims to provide a postgraduate training, third level, able to confer a title attesting that its holder is the author of a personal research, original and high scientific level. The title of Research Doctor is awarded after having carried out three-year training and research activities and after having successfully discussed the Doctoral Curriculum Thesis. The ownership of the PhD clarifies, along with the specific cultural skills of the disciplinary areas involved, the scope of operation of the same: the contemporary territory understood as the overlapping of material layers capable of defining the characteristics of identity resulting from the interaction between geographical realities, natural, and archaeological, architectural and artistic heritage, artificial type, obtained by the work of man. The territory is the melting pot of complex intangible networks structured thanks to the existence, as well as resistance and persistence, of ethno-anthropological characters that, over time and as a whole, have contributed to defining a specific linguistic, philosophical and literary activity capable of culturally characterizing the territories to which they belong. In a global and consumerist society, the recovery of the material and immaterial values of contemporary territories represents a primary objective for reversing.

    The PhD in “Architecture, Industrial Design and Cultural Heritage” offers basic courses, seminars with interdisciplinary experts and the possibility of attending short periods in research groups.

    PhD students produce at least two research products per year (Book chapters, Contributions in Conference Proceedings, Monographs, Articles in Magazine) to demonstrate the validity of the research project and the results achieved. At the end of each year of the Course, the PhD student draws up a report on the progress of the final thesis project. This report, countersigned by the Tutor, is submitted to the Teaching Board, which approves the transfer of the doctoral student to the next year of the course.
