Training Activities and Education

The TeCIP Institute developed, and still develops, advanced education initiatives, making available the expertise of the teachers and technologies of its research laboratories.

Two University Master’s currently fall under its advanced education and training initiatives.

ERASMUS MUNDUS Master’s on Photonic NETworks Engineering (MAPNET)

The Master’s on Photonic Network Engineering (MAPNET), jointly organised with Technische Universität Berlin (DE), Aston University (UK) and Osaka University (JP) and coordinated by Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies has been selected and financed by the European Commission for five two-year editions within the Erasmus Mundus Programme.

The Master’s is a highly international initiative and implies a compulsory mobility of students among the European institutions belonging to the promoting Consortium, following precise requirements imposed by the European programme.

At the end of the Master’s, the students receive double degrees from the participating Universities, according to their chosen mobility path.

The European Commission finances the study path for extra-European students (Cat. A scholarships) and European students (Cat. B scholarships). Moreover, there are specific scholarships for the mobility of academic scholars, both European and extra-European, to develop teaching and reasearch assignments within the framework of the Master’s. 

The Master’s embraces various themes and knowledge linked to the training of highly-qualified network engineers. Given the importance of the themes and the derived know how, the MAPNET students will be prepared to cover various profiles in the job market, ranging from major telecommunications operators to public and private organisations, which is very important considering the growing role of networks in communication exchange and in business organisation procedures.  

The Master’s activities are structured in such a way that the first twelve months are spent in one of the three European institutions of the Consortium. Starting from the third semester, student shall spend a mobility period from 6 to 12 months in one of the other universities participating to the Erasmus Mundus MAPNET Consortium, following precise mobility schemes.

The Digital Life & Smart Living Master’s (SMART), jointly-developed with Telecom Italia by three institutes of the School (TeCIP, Management and Biorobotics) had a strong multidisciplinary connotation.

Digital Life & Smart Living (SMART)

For the academic year 2015/16, the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna is offering the 3rd edition of the International Master program in "Digital Life & Smart Living (SMART)". Compared to previous editions, the Master has a different name but same target: to train young graduate talented students who will acquire the competence to design, develop and manage communication systems and “Smart” innovative technologies.
