Overview of the Admission Examination Process

As explained below, the examination is a two-step process, with candidates required to take part only to the second step (the interview).
More in detail, the two steps of the admission examination are:

  • A pre-evaluation of the candidates qualifications by the examination Committee, based on the candidates curriculum and project proposal (candidates do not personally take part to this step); the outcome of the pre-evaluation, including the score of each applicant and the interview schedule (limited to applicants admitted to the second examination step, see next bullet point) are going to be disclosed on this web page.
  • Applicants scoring at least 35/50 in the pre-evaluation are interviewed by the examination Committee. As detailed in the Call, the candidate is requested to prepare a 10 minute presentation to introduce him/herself, to explain the motivations to pursue a Ph.D. in Information Engineering, and to discuss the main features of a possible research project on one of the topics of the Ph.D. School ( The Admission Committee will then discuss with the candidate the details of his/her academic titles, curriculum, and research project and will assess if the candidate masters the methodological tools needed to carry on the project.
