- The Master Programme in Advanced Optical Technologies (MAOT) provides in-depth training in the fundamentals and applications of state-of-the-art optical technologies.
- The programme is highly interdisciplinary and brings together experts and knowledge from the fields of Engineering, Physics, Computer Science and Medicine.
- In the MAOT programme students acquire this expertise from across the university in one integrated programme − practically unique in the field of optical technologies.
- The first semester courses teach the fundamentals of optics and basics of lasers to ensure that all students have a homogenous level of knowledge.
- For the second and third semesters students choose two of seven possible topics as their major:
- In the first major, students take minimum of three courses (15 ECTS)
- In the second major, they take minimum of three courses (15 ECTS)
- Three additional courses (15 ECTS) may be taken in any topic or from the entire FAU course catalogue
- A lab course in both of the majors, a research project (300 h) and an internship (5 weeks) are also taken in the second and third semester
- The fourth semester is dedicated to the master’s thesis (30 ECTS or 900 h). Students select a topic and a supervisor for the thesis during the second or third semester.
