- Knowledge and understanding that provide a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and / or applying ideas, often in a research context.
- That the students can apply their knowledge and ability to solve problems in new or unfamiliar in wider or multidisciplinary environments related to their field of study.
- That the students can integrate their knowledge, as well as handle the complexity of making judgements from an incomplete or limited information, but which could include reflections about the social and ethic responsibilities that could be linked to the application of their judgements and knowledge.
- That the students possess learning skills that allow them following their long-life learning in a self-conducted and self-sufficient way
- Ability to produce English-language documents, plans and projects in the field of Photonics Engineering
- Ability to propose, design, implement and maintain a system with photonic components for a specific application
- Ability to understand the generalist and multidisciplinary nature of photonics applied to the resolution of problems or applications
- Capacity to apply the scientific method as a fundamental work tool both in the professional and the research fields, managing the sources of information
- Identify the different blocks which are present in a system where photonics plays an essential role, the specificities of its design, possible subsystems to be used, its integration and its final verification
- To be aware of the current trends in different applications of photonic technologies and learned experiences from real cases
- Handling of measurement instruments and photonics with the support of electronics to develop different devices and systems, with application in communications, avionics, automotive, energy sector and civil infrastructures
- Capacity of selecting novel photonic components, technologies and subsystems
