Summary

PIXNET is our masters course where you’ll learn about the design of communications systems, focusing on photonics integration, sensing and switching.

During this one year course, you’ll benefit from the involvement of industrial partners who will give you the opportunity to see how your academic knowledge can be practically applied. This will be especially helpful as you work on your masters project.

We also run a two year ERASMUS-funded joint Masters course in partnership with three universities across the world. This course includes spending time at different locations to maximise the expertise across the four universities.

What you’ll learn

Our course gives you the knowledge and skills to design, build and evaluate innovative, integrated devices based on photonic technologies. It’s an interdisciplinary initiative to train telecommunications and electrical engineers to investigate the adoption of Photonic Integrated Circuits (PIC) as a central pillar in the evolution of information and communication devices. 

There are five specialisms you can choose as a student on this collaborative course:

  • Optical switching technologies

  • Optical transceiver technologies

  • Design of photonic integrated devices

  • Photonic integrated devices manufacturing

  • Theory and techniques for photonic integrated devices.
