Photonics

The science and technology of light

An indispensable part of our everyday life, photonics revolutionises communications, health care, energy production, manufacturing, and consumer products.

Our two-year Master’s Degree Programme in Photonics Technologies provides you with in-depth knowledge of photonics ranging from fundamental light-matter interactions, laser physics and nonlinear dynamics to the design of optical systems, semiconductor technologies, advanced nanofabrication methods and measurement techniques.

Theoretical knowledge is put into practice through experiments and hands-on laboratory assignments to develop both research and engineering skills. The programme includes close collaboration with industry and regular seminars on emerging research areas. You will also be able to choose electives from among the wide array of courses offered by Tampere University.

Our extensive international networks offer you the opportunity to spend some time in other renowned institutions to further enrich your international experience. Your master’s thesis can be completed at the University or while working for an industrial partner.

After completing the programme, you will understand the role of photonics in society, have the required intercultural skills and international experience, and be prepared for a career as a high-tech expert in industry. You may also opt for an academic career.
