About this course

Infuse your Electronic Engineering studies with the science and technology of light. Photonics has many applications, from broadband internet to precision medical and industrial tools. It’s also vital for new technologies such as quantum and photonic computing, which uses photons for ultra-fast, energy-efficient data processing. This accredited degree will give you access to professional registration as a Chartered Engineer.

On this 4-year, integrated Masters, you'll train in the fundamentals of electronic engineering. This will provide a basis for your specialist Photonics studies. You'll choose from a huge range of specialist modules, covering the latest advances in areas such as :

  • fabrication and microscopy

  • optical communications

  • nanoelectronic and quantum devices

  • metamaterials

  • digital coding and transmission

You’ll learn under academics from our prestigious Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC). The ORC has an impressive record of discoveries - our researchers developed the optical components that power today’s internet.

As part of this course you can:

  • use our research facilities, including a high-voltage lab and our £110m clean rooms

  • develop your enterprise skills with help from our startup supporter, Future Worlds

  • build your own unique electronic systems

This degree is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.

We are also a member of the UK Electronics Skills Foundation.

If you’d prefer a more general approach, or you’d like to focus on a different specialism, you can choose from our other pathways.
