Semester 1: Sustainable Computer Network Engineering. (30 ECTS)
The objective is to provide students with fundamental competences in computer networks and systems engineering in a sustainable way. Part of student education is a project which is initiated by one of consortium partners, spans three semesters and leads to a thesis project. All the courses are delivered at the University of Lorraine
Course 1: Communication protocols (3.5 ECTS) – Pr. T. Divoux

Course 7: French Culture and Language (3 ECTS)
Seminar: (3.5 ECTS) a selection (done by the Universities) of two courses provided by other Partners.
Semester 2: Smart software and services. (30 ECTS)
The objective is to educate students in software engineering, service engineering and cloud computing aspects that may result in the sustainable solutions. Sustainable software and services address challenges for building resource efficient software solutions for various application areas. The courses are organized at the Lappeenranta University of Technology.
Course 8: Service Oriented Architecture (5 ECTS) – Pr. J. Porras
Course 9: Code camp on Communications Engineering (4 ECTS) – Pr. J. Porras

Course 11: Research methods laboratory project (5 ECTS) – Pr. K. Smolander
Course 12: Finnish Society and Culture (2 ECTS) – Dr. Pekka Jäppinen
Course 13: Towards Semester 3 (1 ECTS) – Dr. Pekka Jäppinen
Seminar: (2*3ECTS) a selection (done by the Universities) of two courses provided by other Partners.
Semester 3: Resource efficient pervasive computing systems and communication. (30 ECTS)
The objective is to teach students fundamentals and advanced issues of mobile networks, mobile and distributed systems, energy efficient sensor networks, pervasive computing and mobile software and services. The students will learn how to apply acquired knowledge to various application domains focusing on sustainable development. The courses are given at Lulea University of Technology.
Course 14: Network programming and distributed applications (7.5 ECTS) – Pr. C. Åhlund
Course 15: Wireless sensor networks/ Wireless Mobile Networks (7.5 ECTS) – Pr. E. Osipov
Course 16: Multimedia Systems (7.5 ECTS) – Pr. K. Andersson
Course 17: Special Studies in Pervasive and Mobile Computing (Project) (3 ECTS), Pr. C. Åhlund/K. Synnes
Course 18: Swedish for Beginners AI:1a – (1.5 ECTS)
Seminar: (3ECTS) a selection (done by the Universities) of one course offered by other Partners.
Semester 4: Master Thesis project (30 ECTS)
The objective is to pursue Master Thesis project at partner universities and/or affiliated industrial companies for the whole semester. Each student will have two supervisors. Assessment will be done on the basis of a written thesis.
In PERCCOM program, a Master thesis topic area is allocated to each student in semester 1. The list of Master theses topics will be presented on the PERCCOM website at the beginning of the semester 1. The students will have time to consult all the proposals. A virtual market place of potential Master thesis projects will be held during semester 1 where students who have the opportunity to discuss possible projects with consortium partners. Each hosting University during semesters 1-3 gives a course dedicated to preparation of a Master Thesis and teaches how to write reports, make oral presentations, manage a project.
At the end of every academic year, a hosting University will organize a virtual a PERCCOM conference where Master theses projects are presented. All graduating and semester 2 students as well as PERCCOM consortium partners will be invited to participate. The organization of the PERCCOM conference will be as follows: Two days are reserved for Master thesis project dissertations presentation. And one day is dedicated to professional talks by industry partners.
Seminars: The Associated partners and Saint Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics can propose courses in the context of seminars. Globally, a cohort will follow five courses during these seminars. (The courses will be held in the hosting universities, not in the university which proposes the course). These courses deliver credits: 3 ECTS by course of 20h. The interest of these courses is the students meet other teachers coming from other universities and having complementary experiences and skills in Green ICT domain. The steering committee will select these additional courses in a pool of courses. The students may be involved in the selection. The budget dedicated to seminars is defined in A.3.2 in integrating scholar scholarships where possible. The pool of courses can evolve and is currently:
– Developing Green IT Strategies – Pr. C. Pattinson, Leeds Metropolitan University,
– ICT & Environment – Dr. Ah-Lian Kor, Leeds Metropolitan University,
– Sustainable (Green) computing – Dr. S. Kazmi, D. Robison, University of Bradford,
– Participatory Urban Sensing – Pr. G. Samaras, G. Pallis, University of Cyprus,
– Sustainable microelectronics – Pr. R. Tourki, M. Atri, University of Monastir,
– Sustainable electronics – Pr. R. Tourki, H. Belmabrouk, University of Monastir,
– Models and Methods of high-performance computing considering energy consumptions – Pr. A.Boukhanovsky, Saint Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics,
