About

Our Applied Photonics at University of Glasgow is an alternative to a traditional PhD aimed at students looking for a career in industry. Students spend about 75% of time working directly with a company in addition to receiving advanced-level training from a broad portfolio of technical and business courses.

Overview

The Centre for Doctoral Training in Applied Photonics at University of Glasgow works with companies developing photonics-enabled products and services, from consumer technology and mobile computing devices to healthcare and security.

Features 

  • Each of our collaborations is built around an EngD or PhD student, providing them with masters-level technical and business qualifications, along with an industrially-connected doctoral research project.

Programme Structure

Curriculum:

  • Our staff and students have the opportunity to use these facilities, and PhD students are in some cases seconded to external facilities for a significant part of their research.
  • Graduates leave with numeracy, problem-solving skills, a capacity for logical thought and the capability to apply abstract concepts to the real world, as well as experience of working in teams. 
  • Career opportunities for physicists can be found in research in universities or in many areas of industry: high tech manufacturing, semiconductor, materials, finance, consultancy and teaching.
