Biophotonics by Research (MSc)


Course Description

The course’s aim is to prepare physical scientists, life scientists and engineers to work in the rapidly expanding disciplines of biophotonics and imaging. For those with a background in the Biological Sciences, emphasis will be placed on the quantitative methods that now play a crucial role in the development of biology.

Students with previous experience in engineering or physics will be tutored in the challenges of working at the interface with biology.
In addition to a sound knowledge of interdisciplinary science, students will develop:
key skills enabling them to communicate with researchers in
other disciplines
the ability to plan and undertake an individual project
interpersonal, communication and professional skills
the ability to communicate ideas effectively in written reports
project management skills in relation to the scientific and
technological aspects of the subject, including design, data collection and analysis
critical and decision making skills

This masters course is taught on a full-time basis over one year and consists of 60 credits of taught modules and a 120 credit
independent research project. The individual research project is taken over the full year with guidance from an academic member of staff.

A previous research project on this course has been:
Towards single photon detection with a practical EMCD
