DRIEI supports several initiatives to increment the international exposure of the PhD Program.
- Doctor Europaeus. It is a certificate of European Doctorate that supplements the title of PhD. Requirements.
- ICO: International Curriculum Option on Hybrid Control for Complex, Distributed and Heterogeneous Embedded Systems. It is an agreement signed by 17 Universities, 16 in Europe and one in the USA (Berkeley). A student enrolled in DRIEI whose research topic belongs to those listed in the agreement may apply to the program. More information can be found on the
ICO web site or contacting the ICO representatives at the University of Cagliari (Alessandro Giua, Carla Seatzu).
- Co-tutorship thesis. Co-tutorship allows PhD students, enrolled at DRIEI or at a foreign University, to prepare their thesis alternating periods of studies at their host University and at the partner University. The thesis will have two advisors, one at the university of Cagliari and one at the foreign University. The thesis will be defended at only one institution and the student that passes the exam will be awarded a joint PhD title. Requirements.
- Studies abroad. PhD students spending a period of study abroad receive an increment of 50% of their fellowship to cover travel and living expenses. The request for a period of study abroad should be sent to the PhD Program coordinator: if the period exceeds three months the request must be approved by the PhD Program Board. Form.
- Foreign students. Yearly, the PhD board can reserve one or more fellowships (according to availability and to the requests) for foreign students. Foreign students with fellowships from their own countries are also welcome.
