The Institute of Communication, Information and Perception Technologies of SSSA was created in 2001 as Centre of Excellence and does research in optical communication networks through the use of photonic technologies, also in the fields of sensors and biophotonics.
Over the years, the TeCIP Institute has developed different educational programmes (Master’s degrees, Master’s diploma and PhD degrees) and transferred the knowledge emerging from its research activity into advanced training initiatives. It is considered a leader for training activities linked with the economic and production system. The AiPT have a large number of students taking both PhD and Masters level courses. It offers both research and taught masters with some distance learning options.
TeCIP Institute research is highly interdisciplinary. Its laboratories are equipped with the utmost leading edge instruments and technologies. The recent national Quality of Research Evaluation located it in 1st position for Industrial and Information Engineering. The AiPT pursues a diverse range of device-and-system-level topics. It has recently expanded its activities in femtosecond pulsed laser techniques, medical sensing devices, and planar integrated optical circuits. The TU/E Department collaborates with industry in each of the research fields, focusing on electrical engineering aspects that have a major impact on future society.
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 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 skills for the operation and maintenance of network systems and device fabrication.
Requests made by students are specifically addressed by dedicated offices at each partner institution. Prior to admission, each student is assisted by the Master’s Secretariat through a dedicated email account. All institutions are highly experienced in welcoming and addressing student requirements upon their arrival. In particular, an international Office is available at each institution for those students needing to undergo a visa process and to obtain a subsequent permit of stay or to complete a process of registration with local authorities.
In each institution, a Wi-Fi service is offered for all students attending the PIXNET programme, as well as personal mailboxes and other IT services.
The Consortium ensures students are adequately insured while participating in the PIXNET Master’s. The coverage is compliant with the European Commission’s minimum requirements and includes all worldwide travel required. The insurer provides high-quality services in relation to risks such as: illness, pregnancy, accident, and other supplementary assistance services.
