Photonics Science and Engineering Programme (PSEP) 

Photonics Science and Engineering Programme (PSEP) is an inter-disciplinary PG Programme offered by the Center for Lasers and Photonics (CELP). The aim of PSEP is to train engineers/scientists in interdisciplinary activities in photonics and related areas.The M.Tech programme runs for 4 semesters and includes both course work and a thesis component.


Course work includes mandatory courses and electives that students can opt for in consultation with convener of the PSEP. Students also complete a 2 semester thesis with one of the CELP faculty as part of their M.Tech degree in cutting edge areas such as nanobiophotonics ultrafast optics and quantum optics and quantum computation to name a few

A unique part of M.Tech experience at CELP is a course on laboratory techniques that provides students with an opportunity to learn hands-on experimental skills in photonics.

PhD candidates admitted after a Masters degree in Engineering have to complete a minimum of four courses. The most important part of the PhD program is the research work leading to a thesis. The research should represent an original investigation and is expected to make a significant contribution to the knowledge in the subject. The thesis is examined by a board of examiners appointed by the institute and is also defended by the candidate in an oral examination before a thesis board.
