Photonic and Optical Engineering (MSc/PGDip)

Course Description

This MSc is designed to provide students with an advanced and comprehensive coverage of the fundamental principles of how light behaves, how it can be exploited and a broad and detailed coverage of photonic communication systems and technology. Students will cover the fields of analysis and design of integrated optical devices for applications including: communications; spatially resolved optical measurements for the monitoring of dynamic processes; and bio-imaging.

The course provides an excellent basis for engineers who wish to update their knowledge in this area, or students/engineers who
wish to go on to do research or study for a PhD degree, as well as first degree students who would like to enhance their training.

Students will develop:
advanced and comprehensive knowledge of the specialist engineering skills required by an engineer working in this field
the ability to plan and undertake an individual project
interpersonal, communication and professional skills
the ability to communicate ideas effectively in written reports
the technical knowledge and skills to equip them for a leading career in the application and design of photonic and optical components the design, analytical and critical powers in relation to hardware and software aspects of photonic and optical components
decision making powers in relation to the specification of photonic and optical components

Following the successful completion of the taught modules, an individual research project is undertaken during the summer term.

Previous research projects on this course have included:
Modelling surface plasmon based devices
The all optical Mach-Zehnder Switch
The design of chalcogenide glass microstructured optical fibres
An assessment of the role of beam propagation Simulations for Silicon Nanowires
