Organization profile

Organisation profile

The Industrial Doctorate Centre in Optics and Photonics Technologies is one of eighteen EPSRC funded Industrial Doctorate Centres. The Centre is a collaboration between Heriot-Watt, Glasgow, St Andrews and Strathclyde Universities. With 350 members we are the largest academic body of optics and photonics researchers in the UK.

In partnership with our industrial partners we provide commercially-focused, Engineering Doctorate training across an expansive range of technologies in optics and photonics: including devices and systems and cognate technologies in signal and image processing, microsystems and product design and manufacture.
