Second Level Specializing Master in Photonics for Data Networks and Metrology
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 Things and to enabling Industry 4.0.
Besides, data transport and 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. Training such new professional figures is indeed the mission of the 2nd level Specializing Master's Programme, organised by Politecnico di Torino in collaboration with INRIM.
The Programme is supported by the EU through the project H2020-INFRAINNOV-CLONETS and will offer theoretical and practical lecturing, hands-on experiences, and a final internship in European industrial and/or research environments.
