Learning Opportunity: Photonics, Master of Science (Physics)

Photonics, Master of Science (Physics)

Course Information

The Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Photonics is a two year full time study program. Master's degree consists of 120 ECTS of studies in one main subject, photonics.

Learning objectives

The objective of Master's degree in photonics is to give students good expertise to modern optics and photonics at both theoretical and experimental level. This contains ability to understand optical phenomena, design and analysis of optical systems, fabrication methods of photonics structures, and ability to scientific and technical communication in photonics. This all gives capability to work in photonics related companies as an expert and developer, and to continue to PhD studies in photonics. The education is based on high-quality photonics research in the department.

Photonics is the science of light. It is the technology of generating, controlling, and detecting light waves and photons, which are particles of light. Photonics is everywhere; in consumer electronics (barcode scanners, DVD players, remote TV control), telecommunications (internet), health (eye surgery, medical instruments), manufacturing industry (laser cutting and machining), defense and security (infrared camera, remote sensing), entertainment (holography, laser shows), etc. (WhyLightMatters)
