+ 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 know how to communicate their conclusions and knowledge as well as the ultimate reasons that support them to both specialized and non-specialized audiences, in a clear way and avoiding ambiguities.
+ That the students possess learning skills that allow them following their long-life learning in a self-conducted and self-sufficient way.
+ Ability to understand the generalist and multidisciplinary nature of photonics applied to the resolution of problems or applications.
+ Capacity to lead and work in a team integrating multidisciplinary approaches, managing and planning their own work.
+ 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 and use methods for the search of resources, the economic and administrative management of advanced projects in Photonics Engineering.
Specific Skills ...
+ 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.
+ Capacity of selecting novel photonic components, technologies and subsystems.
As a summary:
To overcome this subject students should be able to identify from a practical point of view what are the main challenges in one or several applications of photonics, as well as their integration and use. Students are expected to have contact with the sectors with the greatest impact and acquire the knowledge of the practical problems that can be found in the development of a photonic system in the business environment. They are also expected to be able to identify technologies and systems with greater innovative potential, as well as enhance interaction with professionals in the sector.
