A brighter, lighter and healthier world

Career prospects

The aim of these master programs is to form engineers and scientists with firm basic knowledge in the field of photonics and with the skills to apply this knowledge to the design, realisation and the management of photonic systems for a broad range of application domains.

Furthermore the students will have the opportunity to broaden their knowledge and skills in other domains, such as ICT, biosciences, physics and chemistry of materials, industrial management etc.

Therefore graduates are expected to go on to a broad range of future opportunities, including:

  • Research in high-technology companies, in particular photonics-related companies
  • Research in academic laboratories and research institutes (possibly in PhD context)
  • Development of new photonic products in industry
  • Technical support in a company for its products or services
  • Technical marketing and sales
