Careers

Dramatic progress has been made in the past few years in the field of photonic technologies. These advances have set the scene for a major change in commercialisation activity where photonics and electronics will converge in a wide range of information, sensing, display, and personal healthcare systems. Importantly, photonics will become a fundamental underpinning technology for a much greater range of companies outside the conventional photonics arena, who will in turn require those skilled in photonic systems to have a much greater degree of interdisciplinary training, and indeed be expert in certain fields outside photonics.

Employability
Our students are highly employable and have the opportunity to gain industry experience during their MRes year in large aerospace companies like Qioptiq, BAE Systems, Selex ES; medical equipment companies such as Hitachi; and technology and communications companies such as Toshiba through placements based both in the UK and overseas. Several smaller spin-out companies from both UCL and Cambridge also offer projects. The Centre organises industry day events which provide an excellent opportunity to network with senior technologists and managers interested in recruiting photonics engineers. A recent 2014 graduate is now working as a Fiber Laser Development Engineer for Coherent Scotland. Another is a Patent Attorney for HGF Ltd.

Why study this degree at UCL?

The University of Cambridge and UCL have recently established an exciting Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Integrated Photonic and Electronic Systems, leveraging their current strong collaborations in research and innovation.

The centre provides doctoral training using expertise drawn from a range of disciplines, and collaborates closely with a wide range of UK industries, using innovative teaching and learning techniques.

This centre, aims to create graduates with the skills and confidence able to drive future technology research, development and exploitation, as photonics becomes fully embedded in electronics-based systems applications ranging from communications to sensing, industrial manufacture and biomedicine.

Your programme of study

If you are interested in medical imaging and highly sophisticated ways of assisting in diagnostics visually the medical imaging programme comes from a long heritage of major world innovation which was led by research at Aberdeen. Did you know researchers at Aberdeen invented the first MRI scanner (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) for instance? Since this time much has been done to further work on the MRI scanner and deliver some of the most advanced forms of body visualisation tools available to the health area. If you have ever wondered how X rays work or you are interested in the latest radiotherapy techniques to provide therapeutic tools from radiographic equipment and advances this programme not only gives you the theory and practice in applying imaging in a health setting, it also gives you opportunities to think about the technologies involved and the applications. There is a lot of Physics and Maths required behind the different technologies involved in medical imaging so if you have these subjects and a life science background plus engineering or similar science disciplines this will make the programme more accessible.

By the end of the MSc programme you will have received a thorough academic grounding in Medical Imaging, been exposed to the practice of Medical Imaging in a hospital Department, and carried out a short research project. The MSc programme is accredited by the Institute of Physics & Engineering in Medicine as fulfilling part of the training requirements for those wishing to work in the NHS. There are wide ranging career possibilities after graduation. You may wish to go straight into clinic settings to apply your skills within diagnostics or you may wish to study further for a PhD towards teaching or researching. There have also been spin out companies as a result of understanding and applying imaging technologies towards innovative applications. This subject also aligns with some major innovations in Photonics and other areas of medical science which you may like to explore further if you are interested in invention and innovation at the Scottish Innovation Centres: http://www.innovationcentres.scot/
