Seminar - Architecting Data in an AI/ML-Oriented Organization in the Energy Industry: Camlin's approach

The design of smart and distributed solutions for intelligent electricity management associated for example to network faults and load coordination, monitoring and asset management has become strategic for both smart city and industrial electricity networks to run more smoothly, safely and sustainably. In this challenging context, architecting software and data solution with an approach that is Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning oriented result a fundamental pillar for the next generation of platforms and services.

PhD Course - Emerging IT technologies: Autonomous Systems and Blockchains

The course is a general introduction to two emergent IT technologies: autonomous systems and blockchains. Technical content limited to practical examples. The goal is to make you aware of what these technologies are, and how they can help design modern software systems. Part I will define autonomy, agents and multi-agent systems, provide the basics of game theory, and then overview the kind of interactions agents may exploit the achieve goals. Part II will define what the blockchain is, why it matters, how it works, and then provide more technical details on a specific blockchain, Ethereum, and on smart contracts.

Doctorate School in Industrial Innovation Engineering


The overall objective and vision of the PhD course in Industrial Innovation Engineering is to train people in learning highly-innovative engineering concepts, in applying the acquired knowledge to produce innovative research suitable for technology tranfer.

In order to realize its vision at the best, also in consideration of the local industrial context, the course is organized around two complementary curricula: Engineering Management and Mechatronics and Energy Engineering respectively. 

The curriculum in Engineering Management focuses on complex systems’ integration processes, both from a technical and managerial perspectives. The need for integration is triggered by multiple causes: increased technological complexity of products and services; globalization and delocalization and outsourcing strategies; the emergence of new network organizational structures. The consequences on production processes are: shortened products’ life cycles, integrated supply chain, smaller production lots, the need for more sophisticated managerial control systems. The curriculum’s main topics are: design of flexible production systems, design of intra and inter organizational processes, resources and production planning, logistics and supply chain, organizational control, knowledge management, network of firms, management of information flows enabled by new information and communication technologies (ICT).

The curriculum in Mechatronics and Energetic Engineering focuses on strategic research areas in the fields of innovative Mechatronics devices and systems, and of technologies for energy generation and delivery and for energy efficiency. The fundamental and applied research areas dedicated to the integration of different technologies to realize innovative Mechatronics devices and systems, and to develop technologies for high energy efficient systems are crucial in the international scientific research scenario. In addition, these research areas have a strong impact on the economic industry. In details, the above mentioned curriculum will deal with topics related to the development of smart Mechatronics materials, the fluid power, the development of industrial electronic systems and devices, the control and the optimization of production and robotic systems, the power generation from renewable energy sources, the high efficiency energy conversion and delivery, the analysis and monitoring of the impact on the environment through wireless sensor networks, the impact of human factor on the product design.

The Ph.D. course in Innovation Industrial Engineering is part of the PhD School on "E4E: Engineering for Economics - Economic for Engineering".
