Objectives

Optical communications are integral to modern digital society, as the only technology capable of handling large amounts of data over long distances, upon which networks rely. Moreover, the continual development of new online services requires sustaining an ever-increasing traffic capacity, which runs squarely into information-theory transmission limits and an uncontrolled energy consumption both. This course is supported by teaching and research groups renowned worldwide, in topics from Fundamental Physics to Information Theory through Computer Science and Networks.

The expertise in optical solutions acquired by our students is in demand not only in the Information Technology industry and academic research institutes, but translates to other applications as well in the health industry, bioscience, energy, fabrication technologies, environment, and many others.

We aim to train engineers and researchers who can meet these challenges: design optical communication systems suited to given constraints and required applications; design cross-layer optical network architectures, from the physical layer to higher network layers; select optical components according to their performances among current and future solutions; and design the photonic devices needed for optical data processing and transport in future networks.

Course Prerequisites

The training is aimed at students who have already completed their first year of Master's M1 (60 ECTS) or equivalent in such fields as: electrical engineering, physics, communication systems engineering, etc.

Skills
  • Create knowledge built on a scientific approach.

  • Analyse and design the operation of an optical communications system with the requisite scientific rigour.

  • Contribute to the development of a project in a multi-disciplinary environment combining physics, optics, advanced signal processing, incroporating notions of information theory, communication networks, etc.

  • Use conceptual, methodological, numerical, technical and practical knowledge and skills for modelling and solving problems in physics or engineering, or straddling both disciplines.

  • Be able to analyse a scientific article or presentation and grasp its underlying issues as well as its limits.

Career prospects

The skills acquired in optical solutions enable students not only to respond to major challenges in the field of information technologies, but also to address other applications related to the health, biosciences and energy sectors, manufacturing technologies, the environment, and so on.
