The Vrije Universiteit Brussel makes 5 full scholarships available for international students who start the European Master of Science in Photonics in the academic year 2017-2018. The scholarships are assigned to highly qualified applicants on basis of excellence and include a stipend of 800 EUR per month.
Photonics is regarded as a Key Enabling Technology by experts from industry and science, and by the European Commission. To support global societal challenges in domains such as health care, telecommunications, IoT, biotechnology, aerospace, green energy and Industry 4.0, there is an urgent need to enhance talents of young engineers with knowledge and practical skills in photonics and turn them into tomorrow’s engineers.
The financial support offered by VUB can help young potentials to graduate in our multidisciplinary master with a challenging engineering programme including skills development like laser engineering, optical communication technology, optical materials, sensors and micro-, nano- and bio-photonics as well as entrepreneurship.
Once the final admissions to the programme are announced by 20 March, the 10 highest ranked students who enroll at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel for the European Master of Science in Photonics will be invited to show proof of their knowledge and motivation during a separate interview. The assignment of the scholarships for non-EER students will be announced by 31 March 2017 by the VUB Program Board of the curriculum.
More information about admission, application and the application form can be found on this website. The deadline for applications is 5 February 2017.
