Program Description:

The Master of Science in Photonics is a graduate program providing multidisciplinary coverage of the field of optics/photonics, from upstream scientific aspects to engineering and applications in major sectors of the economy. Students enrolled in the two-year program are trained for technical or scientific positions in the industry or academia. This master's program is based on many years of experience in optics education at the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Jena, which has identified photonics and optics as one of its primary fields in education and research. At the same time, the program is embedded in the modern research environment of the Abbe Centre for Photonics, integrating many optics institutes of the university, external research institutions, and a number of prominent industrial partners. The Master of Science in Photonics was selected for funding in the Erasmus Mundus scheme of the European Union. It is well adjusted to incorporate students of different backgrounds and provides the students with a solid knowledge of optics in science and technology.
