Presentation of the division

The Photonics Technology and Communications group was established in 1990 within the scope of the former Department of Electronics and Telecommunications and the Schools of Telecommunication at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. This Group performs both teaching activities in the Schools of Technical Engineering and of Telecommunications Engineering, and as a research effort in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Madrid. These works have led to Research Projects financed by public funds as contracted by public entities or private companies.


Research areas

Currently, the research group focuses on the following research lines:

  • Networks and services with unguided systems

  • Regulation and environmental impact of telecommunications infrastructures

  • Application of New Technologies to the tourism sector
