This international PhD program trains a new generation of researchers who focus on Mechanical and Manufacturing Systems, Automation and Electronic Systems and Computer Systems to carry out independent research in the areas of Advanced-Systems Engineering and to give them the opportunity to transfer and exchange knowledge with national and international research centers and industries.
The three-year PhD program focuses on the study and development of advanced and intelligent systems through an interdisciplinary approach that responds to recent technological developments (e.g., Cyber-Physical-Systems, Industry 4.0, Internet of Things) by integrating the disciplines of mechanical engineering, manufacturing engineering, information engineering and computer science. They are supported by specific skills in mathematics and artificial intelligence.
Ph.D. student projects pertain to the following research areas, which are actively pursued by research groups at UniBZ on a long-term basis, and are considered in the Ph.D. on Advanced-Systems Engineering:
Mechanical-and-Manufacturing-Systems Engineering - Mechanical and Mechatronic Systems - Advanced Manufacturing Technologies - Mechanical Engineering Design and Optimization - Production Systems and Management, - Smart Factory
Automation and-Electronic-Systems Engineering - Autonomous systems - Human-in-the-loop systems - Thin-film devices and sensors - Flexible and wearable electronics, smart textiles - Micro and nano technology - Soft biocompatible sensor systems - Robotic Systems - Automatic Control - Intelligent Sensor/Actor Networks
Computer Systems Engineering - Systems of Systems - Complex Networks - Distributed Systems and Security - Self-Adaptive Software Systems - Development and Operation of IoT Systems - Operations Research
