Course Description

Optical technologies play a key role in a wide variety of technical applications that are essential for future developments in technology and society; optical data transmission – the backbone of the Internet – is just one example. Optical technologies are used in areas such as information and communication technology, medicine, car manufacturing, and energy and environmental technology.

The aim of this Elite degree program, which is taught entirely in English, is to offer excellent students an interdisciplinary Master’s degree program with an international perspective. The MAOT degree program follows on from a Bachelor’s degree in physics or engineering. In the first semester, students are taught the basics of optics with a special emphasis on laser technology. In the second and third semesters, students can choose to specialise in two or three of seven practical areas: optical metrology, optical materials and systems, optical material processing, computation optics, optics in medicine, optics in communication and IT, and the physics of light.

The degree program combines theoretical knowledge with practical application. The practical relevance of the degree program is increased through collaboration with the Bavarian Laser Centre (BLZ), the Fraunhofer Institute IISB and departments at Universitätsklinikum Erlangen.

Links to the Erlangen Graduate School in Advanced Optical Technologies (SAOT) make it easier for students to go on to complete a doctoral degree, while the core skills (presentation, project management, etc.) taught in the degree program prepare them for their future careers.
