Postgraduate Programs in Photonics and Optoelectronics
Students and staff in the Laser Laboratory, as part of the graduate programs in photonics

In 2001, the School of Physics began offering a range of postgraduate programs in photonics and optoelectronics by course-work. Our programs provide a thorough theoretical and laboratory based training in the relevant areas, taught by experts from the School of Physics and the School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications. UNSW is the only university in Australia that offers postgraduate coursework qualifications in this area.

This year 30 students enrolled in the various programs that range from the Graduate Certificate to the Masters degree. Four full time students have already graduated: two with Graduate Certificates, one with a Graduate Diploma and one with a Masters of Science. Many of the part time students will complete their courses in 2002.

Our postgraduate coursework degrees are designed for people with an undergraduate degree in science or engineering who are interested in a career in photonics or want to upgrade their skills in this emerging technology. While most of our students either come from the photonics industry or are trying to get into it, a number of students in these courses are interested in optoelectronics for reasons other than telecommunications, such as medical research, optical physics or manufacturing. Because of increasing interest from around Australia and overseas, starting from 2002 these postgraduate programs will be available via distance education.
