Course content

Develop your appreciation of photonics and prepare for further research training on this Master's course.

You'll advance your understanding of this exciting area of physics, which enables developments in fields as diverse as biomedical imaging and high power fibre lasers.

Built on our MSc in Optics and Photonics course, this usually forms the first year of the four-year MRes+PhD research training programme in the Photonics group.

You'll develop research interests and skills in photonics and receive training in appropriate research methods.

The course will enhance your written and communication skills for a diverse range of audiences. A substantial taught laboratory element also helps reinforce the practical expertise required to pursue further research.

A major individual project will also provide you with a thorough preparation for PhD study, with the work assessed by oral presentations and a dissertation.
