3. INDUSTRIAL MSC AND PHD THESES
Enterprises can offer scholarships so that students complete their MSc/PhD theses working on a given specific challenge proposed by the enterprise. Our industrial partners can also benefit from the Industrial Doctorates Programme. Our group offers support in the development of smart solutions for complex real-life problems in the areas of logistics, transportation, and production as well as in the areas of distributed and parallel computing (including cluster, grid and cloud computing). Our smart solutions combine different analytics techniques, including: optimization, computer simulation, and data analysis/mining.
Examples of Industrial PhD Projects
- Smart solutions for gas delivery using a fleet of vehicles.
- Waste collection management in smart cities.
- Smart solutions for integrated vehicle packing and routing.
- Smart solutions for delivering in-house services using shared vehicles.
- And many more…
4. RESEARCH PARTNERS
Our group is always open to become a scientific partner in different R&D projects, both at domestic and international levels (e.g. Horizon 2020, etc.), related to the development of smart solutions in the areas of logistics, transportation, and production as well as in the areas of distributed and parallel computing (including cluster, grid and cloud computing).
They are tech- and knowledge-based companies involving University staff which exploit the results deriving from the University’s research and innovation activities.
