Photonics and electronics are highly integrated across a multitude of modern devices and systems. Led by Heriot-Watt University, in partnership with the Universities of St Andrews, Strathclyde, Glasgow and Dundee, this CDT combines taught courses in photonics and electronics along with MBA business modules to produce graduates with an understanding of photonic- / electronic-engineering design, fabrication and systems integration, together with high-level business, management and communication skills. Twenty-three industrial partners have committed to sponsoring 50 EngD and a further 15 PhD places aligned to the Centre. Their cash contributions and those of the EPSRC and the university partners combine to make the total value of the Centre £8.9M, not including an estimated £7M of further in-kind support.
