Since the Coronavirus outbreak, Sant’Anna School has been facilitating the academic progress through e-learning initiatives. Among them is the Master Program in Photonic Integrated Circuits, Sensors and Networks (PIXNet), which recently started a partnership with wholesale-only network specialist Open Fiber for the deployment of FTTH Fiber To The Home infrastructure across Italy.
In collaboration with Open Fiber as a new Associate Partner, the PIXNet program will train students to develop innovative integrated devices for broadband wireless networks based on AI and augmented reality applications in smart cities. This new learning opportunity is scheduled on May 19, adding to the existing course Design of Access, Metro, and Core Networks led by Professor Luca Valcarenghi.
Additional sessions to the program PIXNet illustrate the institutional response to the challenges posed by the pandemic. Students will benefit from research partnership with industry and complete their course requirements thanks to the continued faculty-level support by the Aston University, Osaka University, and the Technische Universitait Eindhoven under the supervision of Professor Piero Castoldi from the Institute of Communication, Information and Perception Technologies (Tecip) at Sant’Anna School.
The PIXNet program, jointly delivered by an international consortium of higher education institutions under Key action 1 in Erasmus+ scheme, prioritizes the expertise of the Consortium partners through six mobility paths. 26 students can benefit from the EU-funded scholarship scheme for a total amount of 700,000 euros.
