Optics and Photonics

The most popular doctorate is the Doctor of Philosophy or Ph.D. Ph.D.s and other study doctorates prepare graduate student to launch new plans that add to the common knowledge base of the field. Candidates for and holders of Ph.D.s often seek professions as professors and researchers, but many also go on to different roles in the charitable, public, and private sectors.

The study of the fundamental properties of light, often referred to as optics and photonics, can focus on the entire range of the electromagnetic spectrum. This education path can lead to a variety of careers, including optical engineer, laser researcher or fiber optics technician.

Europe is, by convention, one of the world's seven continents. Comprising the western most point of Eurasia, Europe is usually divided from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways connecting the Black and Aegean Seas.

The program of Doctorate in Laser, Photonics and Vision Is an Interuniversity program that is offered jointly with the Universities of Santiago de Compostela and Vigo.

It is designed for advanced training in the field of Laser technologies, Photonics and Vision techniques. Its final objective is to provide a training of scientific excellence to future researchers and professionals in this field, thus responding to the growing demand for training for its integration into the national and international R & D & I system.

Why study the degree

In socio-political terms, the scientific-technical sector of science and optical and photonic technology is of extreme importance for the great challenges of the 21st century. The European Union has identified Photonics as one of six key enabling technologies (KET), whose development will determine the competitiveness, productivity and sustainability of European industry's long-term employment. Investment in these technologies will be given priority attention in EU R & D & I policies, not only because of their impact on the Union's industrial and innovation capacity, but also because of their effect on social challenges such as Efficiency and independence of energy, health and health care or transportation, among others....
