The Institute of Photonics currently supervises projects from two Engineering Doctorate Centres: the Industrial Doctorate Centre in Optics and Photonics Technologies, and the Doctoral Training Centre in Medical Devices. The former is an innovative scheme where the student is based within a company while undertaking their training; the latter trains engineers and physical scientists to work at the life science interface.
