The “ICT International Doctoral School” operates within the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science.
The doctorate programme delivers the skills necessary to conduct advanced research at universities, public bodies, or private organizations for the purpose of advancing scientific and technological progress and creating a managerial class with a high-level professional culture and a corresponding international openness. The specific objective of the doctorate programme is to train professionals able to develop high-quality and innovative information and telecommunication systems addressed to solving complex problems. It also pursues the goal of enhancing the doctoral students’ entrepreneurial abilities by furnishing specific training and opportunities to undertake internships. In general, professional growth is fostered within the following various areas of interest: Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision, Speech and Dialogue, Embedded Systems, Wireless Networking, Systems and Networks, Cyber Security, Social informatics, Human computer Interaction, Data Analytics and Management, Knowledge Management, Software Engineering, Formal Methods, Multimedia analysis, Signal processing, Pattern recognition, Remote Sensing and Radar, Distributed Sensing, Communication Systems, Machine learning for signal and image analysis.

The Doctoral Training Center - DTC is an innovation-oriented educational path, additional to the Doctoral School, offered by the University of Trento and EIT Digital and directed to Ph.D students that have a passion for creativity and innovation.
The "ICT International Doctoral School" encourages transdisciplinary programmes to pursue the promotion of cross-disciplinary research within the PhD programme, the training of PhD students with cross-disciplinary skills and the increase of collaborations with the other institutions. The Transdisciplinary Programme in Computational Biology - in collaboration with the International PhD Programme in Biomolecular Sciences of the CIBIO of the University of Trento - aims at training Ph.Ds with complementary competences in Computational Biology.
