Looking back at a successful Photonics Event 2017

On March 15, the annual Photonics Event took place in the iGent building of Ghent University. The Event was organised by GOS (Ghent Optics Society) and the UGent-VUB Program Board.
The aim of the Photonics Event is to ‘connect companies, students and researchers’ and to do so, we have opted to invite a couple of photonics companies and ask them to give a workshop to our students. Besides the first and second master year students, PhD-students also joined in. Students were able to choose 3 workshops of their choice (out of the 5 workshops on offer).

Both Trinean and Luceda Photonics organised a business-simulation game, imec and huawei presented their company and explained who it was to work in their environment and finally commscope took it to a next level and offered hands-on training on fiber connecting.

We’ve concluded the day with a nice networking reception with all students, company members, researchers and the professors from the Program Board.
