    Light and based technologies provide means for addressing current global challenges such as sustainable development, the generation of 'clean energy' and the improvement of people's health and well-being. Its transversal character allows the rise of new "hybrid" technologies such as the Nanophotonics, Biophotonics, Photonics in Medicine, Environmental Photonics, Consumer Photonics and Optical Communication Photonics, etc. That is why Photonics is identified in Europe and the United States as one of the key technologies for fostering future economic development.

    The main goal of the master degree program is  to prepare professionals with a high level of expertise in cutting-edge photonics technologies and being able to innovate using them,

    • with a practical vision,
    • providing subtainable solutions in different environments,
    • having the proper tools to get involved in an industry demanding experts on those technologies,
    • for creating starts-up or researching in that field.

    After finishing the master degree, students can enroll in Electrical, Electronics and Automation Engineering PhD degree program among others.
