UCL-Cambridge Centre for Doctoral Training in Integrated Photonic & Electronic Systems (IPES)
Two World-Leading Universities
ONE CENTRE – ONE COURSE
Light is vital for life. It is essential for a wave of new technological developments which will transform our world for the better. Cambridge University and UCL have joined forces to develop the next generation of integrated photonic systems, pioneering research with light.
The Centre trains postgraduate students, using innovative teaching and learning techniques and collaborates closely with a wide range of leading companies and research centres worldwide. We create graduates with the skills and confidence necessary to drive future technology research, development and commercial exploitation, as photonics becomes fully embedded in electronics-based systems applications ranging from communications to sensing, industrial manufacture and biomedicine.
All students study at both universities. We collaborate with a wide range of leading companies and research centres worldwide and use innovative teaching and learning techniques.
The Centre provides a dynamic new approach to doctoral training using expertise drawn from a range of disciplines including:
We have funding available for UK and EU students eligible for EPSRC awards.
All home and EU applicants must complete the pre-application form at www.ipes-cdt.org prior to making a full application to enable us to assess your suitability at an early stage in the recruitment process. Overseas students may also do this in order to gain an idea of their chances, though they may also apply directly. It normally takes 4-6 weeks to update applicants on the status of their pre-applications.
Overseas students who wish to apply for Cambridge may apply for the MRes and the 1+3 programmes, though only a few offers are made for the 1+3 scheme. If overseas students wish to apply for a scholarship, they must do this before the deadline, which is usually in early December.
