Study program

The M.Sc. Photonics course schedule commences its first semester with a compulsory adjustment module of fundamental lectures. The longer students follow the program, the larger their freedom to choose from a great number of different subjects from the catalogue of the M.Sc. Photonics study program (download the full PDF version here). Likewise, students are encouraged to make use of our research-grade laboratories to further their growing experience and knowledge of photonics, and to inspire independent thinking and creativity in our young scientists.
