The Connected Electronic and Photonic Systems program from University College London (UCL) is awarded by the university at which the student is registered. This degree was formerly known as MRes in Integrated Photonic and Electronic Systems.


The Connected Electronic and Photonic Systems program from University College London (UCL) aims to train students in the skills needed to produce connected electronic and photonic systems for information, sensing, communications, manufacturing and personal healthcare systems.

Students can choose from a programme of specialised modules including electronics, biotechnology, circuits and sensors, quantum and nano-technologies, machine learning and the internet of things.

As well as developing a solid foundation in photonic systems and advanced research skills, students will also gain a good understanding of the industry. On successful completion of the MRes students should be equipped to embark on their PhD with confidence.


Dramatic progress has been made in the past few years in the field of photonic technologies. These advances have set the scene for a major change in research and commercialisation activity where electronics, photonics and wireless converge in information, sensing, communications, manufacturing and healthcare systems.

Photonics has become a fundamental underpinning technology for companies outside the conventional photonics arena. These companies require employees (graduates and researchers) with a much greater degree of interdisciplinary training; to be experts in both photonics and related fields.
