An initiative of the Federal Government of Germany, the state of Thuringia and 20 industrial companies has been launched in order to educate young and dedicated people in the thriving field of optics and photonics: The Abbe School of Photonics. We offer:
 A top-notch international program solely taught in English
 Close cooperation with Germany’s photonics industry and academia in terms of internships and master’s thesis
 A broad education program in science and engineering with practical trainings, lab projects, language courses, and courses in transferable skills
 Career services strongly connected to Germany’s photonics industry and elite academia

The program is divided into four stages providing the students with the necessary prerequisites in Electrodynamics, Photonics, Condensed Matter Physics and Practical Laboratory work in optics (Stage I: Adjustment), to give them a solid background when deepening important topics such as Laser Physics, Optical Metrology and Optical Design (Stage II: Fundamentals) and let them acquire specialized knowledge to be selected out of about 20 advanced courses (Stage III: Specialization) to be able to perform a nine-month research project on a current topic of research competently (Stage IV: Research Labworks and Master’s Thesis). In addition, an 8-week industrial internship is scheduled after the second semester. The study will be complemented by language and transferable skill courses as well as ASP special lectures provided by internationally renowned guest professors.

    I would like to study the master’s degree on photonics if I get the scholarship opportunity. Currently I am Bsc. degree holder by physics with CGPA of 3.79 and am working in Adama Science and Technology University as Academic and Research Assistant. I have a highly interested to study the post graduate program by photonics if am lucky to get the scholarship outside.
