Erasmus Mundus Scholarship: MSc in Optics in Science and Technology – OpSciTech for International Students
MSc OpSciTech is a unique European Master’s Course providing a comprehensive and multidisciplinary coverage of the field of Optics, from upstream scientific aspects to engineering and applications in major sectors of the economy. Offered by six top-level academic partners in five countries, it receives financial support from the European Commission and is supported by major industries such as Alcatel-Lucent, Philips, Saint-Gobain, Thales, Zeiss or ASML.
The OpSciTech partners are:
- Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands
- Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany
- Imperial College London, The United Kingdom
- Université Paris-Sud 11 and Institut d’Optique Graduate School, Paris, France
- Warsaw University of Technology, Poland
Optics: the branch of physics and engineering which describes the behaviour of light and its interaction with matter and utilizes it.
More precisely, “Optics is the field of science and engineering encompassing the physical phenomena and technologies associated with the generation transmission manipulation detection and utilization of light” (ref.: “Harnessing Light: Optical Science and Engineering for the 21st Century”, National Academy Press 1998 ISDN 1-800-624-6242?…)
Applications: biosciences to medical technology, quantum physics to telecommunications, optical systems to mechatronics and image analysis.
Optics has been around for many centuries and will remain at the heart of science and technology for century to come.
MSc OpSciTech is your opportunity to be part of the vibrant community of optics scientists and engineers.
Erasmus Mundus grants for non-EU students (“Category A” from 2010-11)
OpSciTech is one of the Master Courses selected by the prestigious Erasmus Mundus framework of the European Commission through which students from non-European Uni0n countries are eligible for two-year grants of € 24,000 per year. For 2010/2011, a total of 10 Erasmus Mundus grants are available for these students (“general category”) and additionally 1 or 2 specifically for students from “special windows”, namely Western Balkans and Turkey. EM grants are awarded on the basis of merit by the European Commission under proposition of the OpSciTech board.
