The Master of Science In Photonics Engineering programme is a 2-year interuniversity English taught master programme organised jointly by Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Ghent University.
The programme offers a fully residential on-campus track and a semi-online track.
In the residential on-campus track students spend both master year 1 and master year 2 on-campus. In master year 1 students take core photonics courses in semester 1 & 2 at VUB or UGent, supplemented by a number of advanced photonics electives.
In master year 2 students can design their own programme combining:
- Advanced photonics courses at VUB, UGent or partner universities
- Multidisciplinary modules at VUB, UGent or partner universities
- Strong international components for the master dissertation or research exchange,
- Opportunities for (international) internships at research institutes or industry.
For their second year students can continue their studies at VUB or UGent or they can go for an Erasmus Exchange at one of our partner institutions for a semester or a full year to take courses and/or write their master thesis.
VUB and UGent work closely with top partner universities worldwide. Students can design their personal exchange programme aligned with their focus and interests.
In the online track students follow master year 1 fully online. For master year 2 they come to VUB or UGent. For more info on the online track, go to Online track.
