The course is run jointly by the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of St Andrews and Heriot-Watt University, with one semester of study at each University, normally followed by an industrial project. This course gives our students access to the broad and complementary range of photonics expertise at the two sites and provides postgraduate vocational training in lasers, modern optics and semiconductors, tailored to the needs of the optoelectronics and photonics industries, as well as a providing a good training towards a research degree in this field.
Postgraduate Study in Photonics and Quantum Sciences
The Institute of Photonics and Quantum Sciences at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh carries out a broad range of world-leading research in photonic physics, engineering photonics and quantum sciences.
We have excellent opportunities for postgraduate research study, with over 25 academics offering PhD research opportunities and the Industrial Doctorate Centre in Optics and Photonics Technologies offering EngD degrees in conjunction with industry.
We also co-host the established twelve month Masters course in Photonics and Optoelectronic devices in collaboration with the University of St Andrews.
