Masterutbildning i fotonik

The 21st century is the century of the photon and photonics is the science and technology of generating, controlling and detecting photons. Lasers and related technologies are today indispensable in very diverse fields of science, manufacturing and medical applications. Light-emitting diodes replace our traditional lighting and contribute to lower power consumption. Photonic technology, i.e. optical fibers and related photonic devices, is the backbone of global communication and information exchange. The increasing importance of photonics for society is also underlined by the Nobel prizes in 2009, 2014 and 2018. The Master's programme in Photonics at Lund University provides in-depth understanding of optics and laser technology, practical experience of optical design, practical experience in an optics and laser laboratory and in-depth knowledge of important photonics applications (e.g. communication or medical optics).
The Master's programme in Photonics is coupled to world-leading research activities in optics, lasers and their applications, performed at the Lund Laser Centre. NanoLund, with an active research area in applied photonics, is another research centre connected to the programme.

Programme structure

The Master's programme in Photonics divides into four branches, whereas the optics and lasers branch is compulsory and stretches with four courses (30 ECTS/credits) in total over the first year of the program. Thus, all students will share the same underlying knowledge, which can be applied freely to the elective courses in the other branches in order build an individual profile, according to interests and background. The individual choices (60 ECTS/credits) will be coordinated with the programme director and can vary largely, from very applied education in optical communication or bio-photonics to quite fundamental courses in atomic physics or quantum optics, just determined by your curiosity. Many of the courses include laboratory exercises, which are coupled to actual ongoing research. The Master's programme in Photonics is concluded with a Master degree project (30 ECTS/credits), where the student will be part of a research group and carry out an independent project. The Master degree project may also be performed in collaboration with industry.

Career prospects

The employment opportunities in photonics are excellent. The photonics market features stable growth much beyond the global GDP growth. Applications of photonics include light detection, telecommunication, information processing, illumination, metrology, spectroscopy, medicine, laser material processing, robotics and defence. While the photonics industry is truly global, a number of photonics related companies exists Lund and two international research facilities create additional opportunities for photonics engineers - MAX IV, a synchrotron radiation laboratory that opened in Lund in June 2016, and ESS, the European Spallation Source that is currently under construction.
