This MSc provides postgraduate vocational training in lasers, optics, and semiconductors tailored to the needs of those seeking to enter photonics-based industry and university research. Students benefit from classes using the expertise at St Andrews and Heriot-Watt universities, followed by an around 3.5 month project, often with a UK photonics company. The industrial project allows real-world application of the material covered at the universities, and gives valuable experience in commercial photonics.
A strong 2.2 Honours degree in physics, applied physics, electronic engineering, or equivalent qualifications.
