Resources and Facilities

Equipment and laboratories

The Ph.D. program benefits from laboratories belonging to the numerous research groups of the universities involved in the Ph.D. program and their international, national and local collaborations. In fact, thanks to this network of laboratories and research groups, the doctoral program has the availability of numerous computer equipment, measurement systems, numerical computing machines, collaborative and industrial robots, drones and various equipment in the field of autonomous systems.

The following are the main laboratories involved in the doctoral program.

Book collection

Doctoral students will have access to the library collections made available by the various participating universities, which include approximately 5,000 periodicals and several million volumes including specialized and normative texts, in Italian and foreign languages.

The library systems of the universities involved in the doctoral course will be available to doctoral students by providing access to a vast library holdings in the area of engineering. The following is the main list of library services.

Databases (access to the content of journals and/or editorial series)

Doctoral students will have access to the most important electronic databases for researching scientific articles in engineering: ScienceDirect and IEEExplore. Other available databases include those of Optical Society of America, American Chemical Society, Ebsco Host, CEI Standards, UNI Standards, Scopus, SpringerlLink, Web of Science, RXIV, ALL, EBSCO, DOAJ, JCR, JSTOR, AMS/Mathschinet, Numdam, PUBMET, Science Direct, WILEY online library, ISI web of knowledge, CEI Standards, Compendex, Inspec.

Electronic bibliographic resources will be available to doctoral students both within and outside the Bari Polytechnic local area network through the credentials provided by the university.

Software specifically relevant to the intended areas of research

Doctoral students will have access to software provided by the universities and research laboratories involved in the doctoral program. In particular, the following engineering software relevant to the field of automation will be available: MATLAB, Microsoft Office 365, Arena Simulation Software, COMSOL Multiphysics, CADENCE, OptiBPM, Optisystem, FIMMWAVE, L-edit; RSoft; Labview, C/C++, Design for Assembly and Manufacturing, Catia (Dassault Systems), ANSYS, SYSWELD, MiniTab17, Featurecam, CPLEX, Mathematica, SCADE, Radcase, Geomagic, Photomodeler, Agisoft photoscan, PowerMill, Mach3, Complete Suite Institutional Unity 5 Pro, SoC on FPGA (for Altera and Xilinx), WSN (p. e. for Memsic/TinyOS), RadCASE, Atmel, Texas Instruments, Intel, Freescale, SDR (Sundance), SystemC simulation environments.

Spaces and resources for doctoral students and electronic computing

Each doctoral student will have a fixed workstation and computing resources at relevant research laboratories in the different universities. In addition, Bari Polytechnic University has a central facility for electronic computing that can be accessed remotely.
