2nd level Specializing Master's Programme in
Photonics for Data Networks and Metrology (2018 - 2019)
at a glance
Data traffic will experience a dramatic growth over the next years driven by 5G access, high-definition video, virtual and augmented-reality contents, and the considerable growth in cloud services due to Big Data Exchange. Photonic data networks will be required to be more and more pervasive and elastic, to supporting the paradigm of Internet of Thing and to enabling Industry 4.0.
Besides data transport, photonic networks will also distribute time and frequency (T/F) standards for research and industry, enabling orders of magnitude performance improvements with respect to satellite systems, over continental geographical areas.
The list of institutions supporting the initiative testifies the need for a vertical multidisciplinary knowledge, from the transmission layer up to the IP layer, and training such new professional figures is indeed the mission of the 2nd level Specializing Master's Programme.
The Programme is supported by the EU through the project H2020-INFRAINNOV-CLONETS and will offer theoretical and practical lecturing, hand-on experiences and a final internship in European industrial and/or research environments.
