    Our 2015 MeccPhD Colloquia Doctoralia will be organized in two different sessions; the second one will take place in March 2015.

    Technical Discussion: all Candidates present their PhD thesis to selected Opponents (internationally recognized experts in the field). During the discussion, Candidates outline the technical contributions of the thesis and answer the Opponent's questions.

    The second step consists in the Final Defense session. Doctoral Candidates briefly present their work to the Examination Board, disclosing the wider significance of the research. All sessions end with a public proclamation of Candidates' final grades.

    We are honoured to welcome our Opponents:

    Prof. ALESSANDRO VIGLIANI Politecnico di Torino

    Within the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Doctoral Final Defenses comprise two major phases:
