Photonics Theme Theme AreaThe programme offered within the Photonics theme involves a selection of lecture courses which we hope will be of interest to you. Additionally there are opportunities to take part in some distance learning courses. It may also be useful for you to look at courses offered through the other themes especially Condensed Matter and Material Physics, and the Core courses. Students are also encouraged to attend Photonics related seminars hosted across Scotland.
In addition, general topics should be studied, and those of particular interest to astronomy and space physics students include advanced data analysis (an introductory prequel is also offered) and courses in different programming languages such as C++, plus transferable skills modules.
