With a Master of Science in Engineering with the Photonics profile you have a comprehensive understanding of modern, laser-based precision manufacturing, optical metrology and imaging, optoelectronics and electro-optics and the design and modelling of photonic systems and microtechnology. You are a professional with expertise on the use of light and lasers in a wide range of applications, such as lighting, manufacturing, measurement and medical technology.
Specific prior knowledge is required for admission to this profile of the master’s degree programme. Candidates holding a good bachelor degree in one of the following disciplines generally meet the criteria:
- Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering
- Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering
- Bachelor of Science in Microtechnology
- Bachelor of Science in Material and Process Engineering
- Bachelor of Science in System Technology
- Bachelor of Science in Photonics
The focus of the master’s degree programme is on specialising in greater depth; two-thirds of the programme is devoted to this and is completed at a research unit of a university of applied sciences. As part of this in-depth specialisation you will write two project theses and the master’s thesis.
One-third of your degree programme focuses on theory, which is taught in modules. These theory modules are subdivided into three areas:
- Technical Scientific Modules | TSM
- Fundamental Theoretical Principles | FTP
- Context Modules | CM
Your degree programme is planned with support from your advisor. This study advisor will also guide you on the choice of theory modules and specialisation.
