Programme structure

We advise our master students to follow a model track with both mandatory and elective courses at Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Ghent University. The first year they can choose to follow one semester at one university and the second semester at the other university. This ‘internal’ mobility allows students to enrich their experience at two leading Belgian universities.

The second year students can design their own programme combining:

  1. advanced photonics courses at VUB, UGent or partner universities
  2. multidisciplinary modules at VUB, UGent or partner universities
  3. strong international components for the master dissertation or research exchange,
  4. opportunities for international internships at research institutes or industry.

VUB en UGent have close collaboration with top partner universities in Europe and worldwide.  Students can design their personal exchange program align with their focus and intrest.

In a nutshell, an overview of the 4 semesters:
