MOBILITY PATHS

The PIXNET study programme is divided into four semesters. 30 ECTS can be gained for each semester. The first three semesters are based on traditional courses, lab exercises and laboratory sessions, while the final semester is based on independent work related to the Master’s thesis.

Six different curricula are available depending on the mobility options selected, and each curriculum requires the completion of four modules, each corresponding to one semester. Except for mobility path n. 5, the first year of the Master's (i.e. the first and second semester of the Master's course) will be spent in the same Programme-country institution. The third semester of the Master's will be spent in a different institution, while the Master’s thesis can be done in the same or in another institution.

 The six curricula and the relevant degrees awarded are defined as follows (the curricula of mobility 5 and 6 are the same):

 Mobility 1: SSSA (1st and 2nd semester), TUE (3rd and 4th semester) defines the “Optical Switching Technologies” curriculum.

The two awarded degrees are: Master's Degree in Photonic Integrated Circuits, Sensors and NETworks by SSSA and the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering by TUE.

 Mobility 2: ASTON (1st and 2nd semester), TUE (3rd and 4th semester) defines the “Optical Transceiver Technologies” curriculum.

The two awarded degrees are: Master of Science in Photonic Integrated Circuits, Sensors and Networks by ASTON and the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering by TUE.

 Mobility 3: SSSA (1st and 2nd semester), ASTON (3rd and 4th semester) defines the “Design of Photonic Integrated Devices” curriculum.

The two awarded degrees are: Master in Photonic Integrated Circuits, Sensors and NETworks by SSSA and the Master of Science in Photonic Integrated Circuits, Sensors and Networks by ASTON.

 Mobility 4ASTON (1st and 2nd semester), SSSA (3rd and 4th semester) defines the “Photonic Integrated Devices Manufacturing” curriculum.

The two awarded degrees are: Master in Photonic Integrated Circuits, Sensors and NETworks by SSSA and the Master of Science in Photonic Integrated Circuits, Sensors and Networks by ASTON.

 Mobility 5: ASTON (1st and 2nd semester), OSAKA (3rd semester), SSSA (4th semester) defines the “Theory and Techniques for Photonic Integrated Devices” curriculum.

The three awarded degrees are: Master in Photonic Integrated Circuits, Sensors and NETworks by SSSA, the Master of Science in Photonic Integrated Circuits, Sensors and Networks by ASTON and the Master of Engineering by OSAKA.

 Mobility 6: SSSA (1st and 2nd semester), ASTON (3rd semester), OSAKA (4th semester) defines the “Theory and Techniques for Photonic Integrated Devices” curriculum.

The two awarded degrees are: Master in Photonic Integrated Circuits, Sensors and NETworks by SSSA and the Master of Science in Photonic Integrated Circuits, Sensors and Networks by ASTON.
