To develop new knowledge for addressing complex societal problems and make it available for society as a whole, either by modifying pre-existing tools & approaches, by combining tools & approaches from different fields, or by developing new tools & approaches that can later on be applied in more general contexts.
To foster original, innovative and high quality academic research in the above- mentioned areas.
To encourage collaboration with scholars from other research centers at national and international level.
To create PhD graduates with advanced skills that make them eligible for positions such as postdoctoral researcher, university professor, researcher at institutes or companies, and other positions that require creativity, leadership and problem-solving abilities in the field of Engineering Management.
Engineering Management is a knowledge area showing a strong growth and a great vitality in academia.
