Join a community of experts in the Optoelectronics Research Centre, a world-leading institute for optics and photonics research. Develop critical technologies that are used in areas such as medicine, defence, manufacturing, communication networks, and renewable energy. We explore optical fibres, nanophotonic and metamaterials, circuits and sensors, and photonics systems in our cleanroom facility. Learn how to design and create optical components and materials. Prepare yourself for research and product development roles in the photonics sector.

The overlap between teaching and research means that our MSc students are always learning material at the cutting edge of research in the field.Dr Bill BrocklesbyAssociate Professor
I am passionate to teach photonic materials and device platforms (fibre and waveguide) which underpin photonic applications.Professor Senthil Murugan GanapathyProfessorial Fellow-Research
I really enjoy taking our students into our fantastic cleanroom facilities, where they can see live demonstrations of optical fibre fabrication processes.Dr Natalie WheelerPrincipal Research Fellow
