RADMEP - Radiation and its Effects on Micro Electronics and Photonics Technologies

The RADMEP Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree provides a multidisciplinary and innovative programme covering the interactions between Radiation and MicroElectronics and Photonics, two Key Enabling Technologies for the future of Europe.

RADMEP's objective is to educate students in those advanced technologies, providing methodology and introducing practical applications for their implementation in a variety of natural or man-made radiation-rich environments. The first semester will take place at the University of Jyväskylän (JYU, Finland) and the second semester at the Catholic University of  Leuven (KUL, Belgium). For the third semester, a choice between two different specialisations will be offered to the RADMEP master students :
  • Specialisation in Radiation Effects on Photonics technologies (Jean Monnet University, Saint-Etienne, France)
  • Specialisation in Radiation Effects on Microelectronics and Advanced Electronic Technologies (University of Montpellier, France).
During the fourth semester, students will undertake a 6-months master thesis either in an industry, an agency or in a research center, for example from the large RADMEP network of more than 35 associate partners.

  • Applied Semiconductor Physics
  • Analog CMOS design
  • Embedded systems
  • Ethics
  • Analog and mixed signal chip design and image sensors
  • Digital chip design
  • Machine Learning - Big Data
  • Digital Signal Processing
  • Photonics: Laser Physics, Optical Engineering, Radiation Effects on Photonic and Optoelectronic Technologies, Simulation tools for Radiation-Matter Interaction and radiation effects on materials


Applicants must hold a Bachelor of Science (or any nationally recognized first cycle degree equivalent to 180 ECTS), preferably in the fields of microelectronics, photonics and physics. While this condition must necessarily be fulfilled at the time of enrollment, the RADMEP consortium accepts applications from students in the last year of their higher education degree. Applicants must possess a solid academic background in the general fields of physics, photonics, semi-conductor physics and microeletronics.


RADMEP has two goals: to improve the students' career prospects and to respond to the needs of the industry, agencies and society. Thanks to RADMEP's European partnership, students will develop useful professional and soft skills in a rich European cultural context.
RADMEP opens up for international and challenging career opportunities, since on the international job market. The demand for postgraduates in photonics and microlectronics in radiated environments as well as basic and applied research is high. Postgraduates will be qualified to work in any company related to aerospace or nuclear activities with a special focus on photonics and microelectronics. This master programme also qualifies the postgraduate for PhD studies.
