Master Lasers & Photonics

The master's programme Lasers and Photonics (M. Sc.) is completely held in English and offers a broad spectrum of subjects:

  • Optics
  • Optoelectronics
  • Laser applications
  • Laser metrology
  • Ultrashort laser physics
  • and many more

In addition to lectures, your curriculum may include laboratory projects in modern, well-equipped laser laboratories, participation in conferences or programming courses. Due to the large number of elective courses, you can actively work on sharpening your professional profile during the master's programme.

German courses for international students and other language courses for domestic students that you take at the Language Centre of Ruhr-Universität Bochum can also be credited as modules towards your degree. This way you combine both subject knowledge and language skills in your master's degree.

The master’s programme „Lasers and Photonics“ is accredited by „AQAS - Agentur für Qualitätssicherung durch Akkreditierung von Studiengängen e.V.“.
