Optical technology is a key technology for the industrial development in the 21st century. The areas of application of optical technologies are widely spread: information and communication technology, medicine, energy, environment technology and many other. A lot of experts anticipate the coming century as the "century of the photon".
Therefore, in winter term 2007/07 a new master programme "Advanced Optical Technologies" (MAOT) started at the technical faculty of the Friedrich-Alexander-University. MAOT is part of the "Elite Net-work of Bavaria" and is open for all applicants with a Bachelor certificate (or equivalent certificate) above average in engineering or physics.
In the highly interdisciplinary programme students learn important fundamentals from natural and engineering sciences (for example physic of the light, principle of a laser) and study three of six topics covering different application fields: optical metrology, op-tical material processes, optical material and sciences, optic in IT, computational optic, optic in medicine.
In all topics the lecturers are outstanding experts from chemical and bioengineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, physics (Max-Planck research group), informatics and medicine. MAOT tutors accompany and support the students during the whole programme.
Since a long time a lot of experts in the re-search and application of optical technologies work at University of Erlangen. In the MAOT programme and at the same time in the Graduate School SAOT (in the frame-work of the federal excellence initiative) these competences are bundled in a unique way. Engineers and physicist are working together with other scientist and with doctors from the hospitals in the "medical valley" Erlangen and integrate their competences in corporate projects.
Institutions from outside the University, like the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits and the Bavarian Laser Centre in Erlan-gen offer additional expertise.
It is part of a long-term strategy towards highly responsible jobs in the industry for our students, that they are supported to proceed their work on optical technologies after MAOT in the graduate school SAOT. Training in important key qualifications like self-management or basics of economic is also part of the strategy for a good vocational training.
The programme is completely in English and takes two years. Due to the special elite character of the programme students achieve a certificate as "Master of Science with Honours".
