WHY ENROLL IN THIS PROGRAM?

Asset n° 1 

Pursue a secure and successful career in industry and research

Asset n°2

Gain practical experience through an internship and substantial laboratory work

Asset n°3

Benefit from courses given by renowned faculty members

This second-year Master’s program aims to train engineers and researchers to meet current challenges relating to optical networks and photonic systems. It offers students the opportunity to design optical communication systems suited to given constraints and required applications. It also covers design cross-layer optical network architectures from physical to higher network layers.

Students will learn how to select optical components according to their performance for current and future solutions. They will then design the photonic devices needed for optical data processing and transport in future networks. The first semester encompasses core courses given by renowned faculty members. During the second semester, students will complete an internship to gain practical experience.

Objectives

This second-year Master’s program allow students to:

  • Gain an advanced vertical knowledge about optical communications: device physics, optical transmission, networking, information theory and digital signal processing
  • Apply open knowledge from optical communications to other photonic applications
  • Gain practical experience with substantial laboratory work across all topics
  • Prepare for a career in research or industry

After obtaining their Master’s degree, students will be well equipped for a career in research or industry:

  • A strong need for expertise in optical solutions in the information technology industry and academic research institutes
  • A wide range of applications in various industry sectors including health, bioscience, energy, fabrication technologies and the environment

Course details will be available when admission opens.
