Course summary

The programme is designed to begin to equip students for engineering leadership positions, developing a high level of understanding and skills in photonic and electronic systems, in particular, the fundamentals of the field together with technology, systems and applications knowledge, and some research experience.

Accordingly, the programme aims to:

  • develop strong business awareness in MRes graduates and foster an understanding of the foundations of management theory and the connections between technology, management and entrepreneurship;
  • encourage an appreciation of applications drivers for photonic systems technologies and the business, road-mapping and cost analysis tools used to determine the adoption of new technological solutions;
  • expose the students to a range of technology areas and provide an experience of a variety of different research and development cultures;
  • encourage students to study across discipline boundaries, with resultant enhancement of interdisciplinary understanding; and
  • equip the graduates of the programme with generic communications skills as well as research-specific training, which would put them in an excellent position to continue on to a doctoral research programme.

Assessment

Thesis

There is no dissertation requirement (other than the project reports outlined below) for students on this one-year programme.
