Photonics science and engineering

WO Master

Algemene informatie

This Master offers

  • a specialization in photonic materials, components and systems. Lasers and LED's, optical fibres and liquid crystals, optical sensors and detectors will reveal all their secrets to you. 
  • a wide variety of elective courses in ICT, electronics, business apsects of photonics, multimedia.... 
  • an industrial internship which will give you the opportunity to get in touch with the Photonics Industry. 
  • a multidisciplinary training in Photonics and Photonics-related subjects, organized by two universities that are both at the top of the innovative world of Photonics. 
  • the opportunity to broaden your knowledge and skills in other domains, such as ICT, biosciences, physics and chemistry of materials, industrial management etc 
The Vrije Universiteit Brussel offers the Master of Photonics Science and Engineering jointly with Ghent University (UGent). When you enroll in this English taught master, you will follow the courses at UGent during the first semester of the first master year and at Vrije Universiteit Brussel during the second semester.

The aim of this master programme is to educate you to become an engineer and scientist with a solid knowledge in photonics and the ability to apply theory into design, realisation and management of photonic systems.

Core and advanced photonics courses
The first year will be devoted mainly to a programme of core photonics courses with essentially the same content at both institutes, complemented by a number of advanced photonics courses as well as several courses in related disciplines and transferable skill courses.

During the second year, you will study where you do your master thesis. This two-year program leads to a joint degree from Vrije Universiteit Brussel and UGent.


Admission requirements
