MSc in Optical Engineering Techniques
The field of optics covers a wide and growing range of activities including information and communications technologies, imaging, manufacturing, life science and health care. Optical phenomena underpin a wide variety of leading edge advances in these industries.
Presently, there exists a large gap between the coverage of these topics in the undergraduate programmes and the skills necessary for both researchers and development engineers engaged in these activities. This course is offered to students who seek to gain an understanding of both the fundamental principles of how light behaves and how it is exploited by both industrialists and scientists alike.
The course is presented by world leading experts in the fields of
1) analysis and design of integrated optical chips for communications and other applications
2) spatially resolved optical measurements for the monitoring of dynamic processes and bio-imaging.
The taught aspects of the course are presented through focused one day seminars supported by case studies and realistic design exercises. A variety of project work is available mixing more or less from each of theoretical, design and simulation and experimental activities.
