*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 5 ECTS each 
(http://www.unive.it/data/33144/ <http://www.unive.it/data/33144/>), 
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.
