This MRes aims to train students to PhD level in the skills needed to produce new integrated photonic systems for applications ranging from information display to industrial materials processing.
To find out core information about this degree, such as entry requirements, programme length and cost, visit the UCL Graduate Degrees site.
We expect competition for places and funding to be highly competitive and all potential applicants should submit the pre-application screening form, available at: www.photonicsystems.org/join/preapplyform. Please note that this does not constitute a formal application. Following initial consideration of your pre-application, and interview, successful candidates will be invited to make a formal application to the University of Cambridge or UCL using the standard application form.
The Integrated Photonic and Electronic Systems MRes is taught at the University of Cambridge and at the UCL Centre for Doctoral Training in Integrated Photonic and Electronic Systems.
Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits. Students take two compulsory research projects (90 credits), one transferable skills module (15 credits), three optional modules (45 credits) and two elective modules (30 credits).
Please note, all choices are subject to space on modules, timetabling constraints and the approval of the relevant Module Tutor and the Programme Director.
