    The Integrated Photonic and Electronic Systems MRes, taught at the University of Cambridge and at the UCL Centre for Doctoral Training in Integrated Photonic and Electronic Systems, aims to train students to PhD level in the skills needed to produce new integrated photonic systems for applications ranging from information display to ultra-fast communications and industrial materials processing.

    The programme offers a wide range of specialised modules, including electronics and biotechnology. Students gain a foundation training in the scientific basis of photonics and systems, and develop a good understanding of the industry. They are able to design an individual bespoke programme to reflect their prior experience and future interests.

    Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

    Students take two compulsory research projects (90 credits), one transferable skills module (15 credits), three optional modules (45 credits) and two elective modules (30 credits).

    • Project Report 1 at either UCL or Cambridge
    • Project Report 2 at either UCL, Cambridge or industry
    • Transferable Business Skills

    Optional modules

    Students choose three optional modules from the following:

    • Nanotechnology
    • Biosensors
    • Advanced Photonic Devices
    • Photonic Systems
    • Solar-Electrical Power: Generation and Distribution
    • Photonic Sub-systems
    • Broadband Technologies and Components
    • Management of Technology
    • Strategic Management
    • Telecommunication Business Environment

    Elective modules

    Students choose a further two elective modules from the list below:

    • Solid State Devices and Chemical/Biological Sensors
    • Display Technology
    • Analogue Integrated Circuits
    • Robust and Nonlinear Systems and Control
    • Digital Filters and Spectrum Estimation
    • Image Processing and Image Coding
    • Computer Vision and Robotics
    • Materials and Processes for Microsystems
    • Building an Internet Router
    • Network Architecture
    • Software for Network Services
    • Optical Transmission and Networks
    • Nanotechnology and Healthcare
    • RF Circuits and Sub-systems
    • Physics and Optics of Nano-Structure
    • Broadband Communications Lab
    • Analogue CMOS IC Design Applications


    All students undertake two research projects. An independent research project (45 credits) and an industry-focused project (45 credits).

    Teaching and learning

    The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, tutorials, projects, seminars, and laboratory work. Student performance is assessed through unseen written examination and coursework (written assignments and design work).

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.


    Normally a minimum of an upper second-class Bachelor's degree in a relevant discipline from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard.
