This MSc provides postgraduate vocational training in lasers, optics, and semiconductors tailored to the needs of those seeking to enter a photonics-based industry and university research. Students benefit from classes using the expertise at St Andrews and Heriot-Watt universities, followed by an around 3.5-month project, often with a UK photonics company. The industrial project allows real-world application of the material covered at the universities and gives valuable experience in commercial photonics.

For 2019 entry, admission to the Photonics and Optoelectronic Devices MSc is administered by Heriot-Watt University.

The MSc in Photonics and Optoelectronic Devices is a 12-month taught programme run jointly by the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of St Andrews and the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, which makes available to students the combined diversity of research equipment and expertise at both universities....
