The goal of this programme is to prepare students for research-oriented and science-based careers in optics and optical technologies and to provide the foundation for further academic programmes within and outside of academia. Students will gain profound knowledge of experimental and theoretical optics as well as specialised training in various subfields of optics.
Master and doctoral programmes in Photonics at the Abbe School of Photonics
All courses and examinations are held in English. Practical experience is integrated into each of the first three semesters. The research and practical components can be completed at either an institute of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy, external research institutes, or research-oriented companies in the field of physics.
Graduates of the M.Sc. Photonics have excellent prospects. Industry currently lacks qualified employees so that students of the programme often receive one or more job offer before completing the programme. Graduates are often sought for challenging and technically demanding positions not only in the fields of optics and photonics, but also in telecommunications and laser technology. Alternatively, graduates can pursue a scientific career, e.g. a Ph.D. at the Graduate School of Photonics.
