Objectives of the PhD

The main objectives of this PhD Programme are to provide the job
market with experts with a broad, in-depth, scientific and
socio-economic background, as well as with a sound and innovative
research experience focusing on the dynamics of climate change,
the design and execution of numerical and mathematical models of
the climate and the economy, the methodologies and techniques for
evaluation, management and assessment, in terms of mitigation and
adaptation measures and policies.
Students gain in-depth understanding of climate processes and
their interactions, ranging from the molecular to the global scale
and from short-term phenomena to changes over millions of years.
They will be prepared to understand the impacts of current changes
in climate as well as the mitigation and adaptation policies put
in place.
All this gives to outstanding young scientists a deep scientific
knowledge and personal skills to take leadership roles in
academia, in consulting firms, as well as in the energy and
insurance sectors, in public administration positions and in the
private sector.
Our final goal is to provide the people, products, policy and
leadership to confront the challenge of climate change at a global
scale, creating new opportunities for innovators to shape the
world’s next economy

Organisation of the PhD Programme

The PhD in Science and Management of Climate Change is a 4 year
programme. During the first year students complete their
coursework in Venice, while from the second year onward they
develop their research projects and work on their final PhD
dissertations. After completion of the first year, PhD students
are required to spend a period conducting research at a foreign
institution or university, to be agreed with the tutor and
approved by the PhD Board. All PhD thesis will be externally
reviewed by international referees.

The programme comprises 12 core courses of 6 ECTS each (https://ift.tt/2TOcBdB),
from a range of subject areas, organized into three terms: Autumn,
Winter, and Spring. Students benefit from a balance between
teaching and learning through a mix of lectures, seminars,
external speakers, discussion group exercises, and case studies.
Credits are acquired by attending the courses and by passing a
final exam. Attendance is mandatory. Seminars, guest lectures, and
elective thematic courses are organized throughout the year in
order to facilitate interaction among students from different
cycles and different programmes, as well as with invited guests
from important research centres and universities.

PhD students completing their studies and receiving their PhDs will
also receive the qualification of MPhil in Science and Management of
Climate Change at the end of their 4-year programme.
