The Photonic Integrated Circuits, Sensors and NETworks - PIXNET Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree at Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna intends to be an interdisciplinary, multi-national initiative, training young telecommunication and electrical engineers to investigate the adoption of Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) as the central element in the evolution of information and communication devices (e.g. Data Centers, mobile terminals, etc.).

 

PIXNET encompasses a wide range of topics and expertise related to the development of highly-skilled “photonic engineers for communication and sensing”.

At the end of the learning activities, students will have mastered the following areas:

  • Optical communication
  • Optical network architectures
  • Optical components
  • Optical signal processing
  • Photonic integration technologies

They will have acquired advanced optical networking skills and will be fully able to plan, design, manage and support photonic device technologies.

Students will be capable of developing proper interdisciplinary connections between the areas of telecommunication networks, micro-opto-electronics, and systems design. They will acquire theoretical and practical design skills for the operation and maintenance of network systems and device fabrication.

Regarding photonic integration, the exposure to different fabrication facilities will allow students to understand both the different technologic steps and the environment in which production platforms of integrated devices are standardized
