The study of optical technologies enables students to think and work in a solution-oriented, creative and innovative way. This is where engineering sciences meet physics, chemistry and mathematics. Leibniz University Hannover offers the Bachelor's degree programme "Optical Technologies: Lasers and Photonics" and the Master's degree programme "Optical Technologies". The degree programme opens up a wide range of potential applications for graduates. Due to the shortage of specialists in the field, there are also excellent opportunities on the labour market.

MASTER OF SCIENCE - OPTICAL TECHNOLOGIES

In General

In the increasingly complex workplace, it is useful to have knowledge in many different areas in order to be optimally prepared for the most diverse challenges. Especially in the research and development of new technologies, creativity and thinking outside of fixed disciplinary boundaries are in demand. For this reason, the Master's programme in Optical Technologies combines the teaching of engineering methods on the one hand with physical fundamentals on the other. You study at both the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics.
