International Joint Master's Programme RADMEP Shapes Future Experts in Microelectronics and PhotonicsGenerated with AI
The Radiation and its Effects on MicroElectronics and Photonics Technologies (RADMEP) programme, hosted by the University of Jyväskylä, Finland, celebrates its first graduates. Providing a 2-year European Master's Degree, the programme delves into radiation's impact on microelectronics and photonics, critical for sectors like space, nuclear energy, and particle accelerators. Funded by the European Union, RADMEP's main aim is enhancing students' career prospects and catering to industry needs.
Students begin their journey in Finland, move to Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium, and then to France, either at the University of Montpellier or Jean Monnet University, based on their specialisation. This structure allows students to benefit from diverse academic cultures while focusing on the most pertinent courses.
Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the first intake graduated successfully, with the majority finding immediate employment. Encouragingly, many graduates have expressed the desire to return to Finland at some point in their careers. The next RADMEP application round commences on October 15th, with scholarship opportunities for outstanding applicants.
