SMARTNET is a collaborative two-year (120 ECTs) joint master degree,funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, with the goal to provide training in the inter-disciplinary fields of photonic and 5G wireless technologies for data communication, sensing and big data processing. It will be accomplished by leading European Universities with distinctive and complementary academic qualities and strong educational and research traditions, namely:
The programme complies with the ERASMUS mobility rules. Incoming students will start from any of the three institutions where they will spend the first two semesters of their studies and receive the core part of their training. The third semester will be carried out in a different institution and will include specialization courses that enhance the interdisciplinary of the offered degree. The fourth semester will be devoted to an independent project that will be reported in the Master’s thesis. Students will carry out their MSc project in close collaboration with industrial partners. SMARTNET has received the strong support of 17 industrial partners, who will provide internship opportunities to students and contribute to their training experience:
Airbus, UK; OTE, Greece; Orange Labs, France; FAZ Technology, Ireland; Coriant R&D, Germany; AIT, Greece; Arden Photonics, UK; Keopsys, France; Orange Polska, Poland; CEMENTYS, France; EKINIOS, France; KTN, UK; EPIC, France; Network Rail, UK; Branscan, UK; Thales, France; Nokia Bell Labs, France; Phoenix Photonics, UK.

PIXNET is a collaborative two-year (120 ECTs) joint master degree, funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, that aims at training talented students to become capable of designing, realizing and assessing innovative Photonic Integrated Circuits for optical communication applications.PIXNET is supported by a consortium of leading universities from Europe and Japan, namely:
PIXNET exploits a significant complementarity of the expertise of the consortium partners and well defined mobility paths that bring practical and specific competence to the perspective students. All partners have strong expertise on optical communication theory and techniques and extensive system and network experimental facilities. The programme is intended for candidates that have a Bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering, Electronics, Telecommunication Engineering, Physics, or related discipline.
All academic partners have strong relationships with industry or private/public research centres focused on technology transfer. In fact, in PIXNET is bringing a “dowry” of 19 companies/research centres who will support the programme as associated partners:
Start date: October 2018 Duration: 2 years, 120 ECTs Delivery: Lectures, workshops, small group seminars, individual and group presentations and projects, MSc dissertation Qualification:International Joint Master Degree Study type: Full-time
