The Abbe School of Photonics (ASP) provides education programs with multidisciplinary coverage of the field of Optics & Photonics, from upstream scientific aspects to engineering and applications in major sectors of economy. Students enrolled in the school are trained for technical or scientific positions in industry and academia.
The Master's degree and doctoral programs are based on the profound experience in optics education at the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, which has identified Optics & Photonics as one of its key profile fields in education and research. The education at the ASP is embedded in a modern research environment under the umbrella of the Abbe Center of Photonics (ACP). This interfaculty center of the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität features strong bonds with local research institutions, such as the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering, the Institute of Photonic Technology, the Helmholtz Institute Jena, as well as a number of prominent industrial partners.The ASP program is part of a full scale education program of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy at the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena specialized in Optics & Photonics. Students enrolled for a Master of Science in Photonics are offered a distinguished education track, starting at the Bachelor level, continuing in the Master's degree program, and culminating into a structured doctoral program. Likewise, students who are enrolled for a Master of Science in Physics can specialize in Optics & Photonics by choosing among all elective modules offered by the ASP. Attractive scholarships are available for different stages of student education.
