The new edition of the Master presents a significant novelty. The PhD students with a Master in Fusion Energy can access directly the second year of the PhD course. A certain number of PhD student positions financed by industries operating in fusion energy will be reserved for those already possessing a Master in Fusion Energy with the PhD work mostly undertaken at the laboratories and plants of the financing industry.
A successful example of link between University of Rome Tor Vergata and industry through the Master in Fusion Energy.
Filippo Gherdovich enrolled in the 2015/2016 edition of the Master in Fusion Energy. After completing the Master he started a Research Doctorate at Tor Vergata on a research project on the applications of supercapacitors to fusion supported by OCEM, a world leader in power electronics and a sponsor of the Master in Fusion Energy. The project has involved the realization of part of the power supply system for the Proto-Sphera experiment at ENEA Frascati on a novel concept of fusion energy reactor.
After the completion of the Research Doctorate Filippo will continue his work in OCEM as designer in power supply systems for fusion technologies.
He describes his experience in OCEM as follows: "A growing up experience between research challenges and industrial needs". Dr. Giuseppe Taddia, General Manager of OCEM Power Electronics, is very positive on this collaboration: "An opportunity for OCEM to contribute to the training of people with the right skills for our business and to create new links with University ".
