The Postgraduate Diploma Programme is a key feature of ICTP's mission to foster the growth of advanced studies and research by scientists from developing countries. More than 50 students are accepted every year for an intense year of study focused on gaining an extensive theoretical background in one of ICTP's five main research fields. The goal is to prepare the students for PhD studies.
Independent research is encouraged, and culminates in a thesis. There is now a large and rich collection of these important academic works, going back to the Diploma programme's founding in 1991. In an effort to make the research accessible to all, the Marie Curie Library has digitised the works and created a digital archive. Here you can find all the available theses, searchable by student name, research field, or year of graduation. The preservation of this work is important to ICTP, and the collection is updated yearly.
