It was a great experience to learn about laser physics and the latest optical engineering research in the LAP Programme. Also, one can learn basic optical lab skills and do fascinating research projects. All of these experiences helped me a lot in my current research. I deeply appreciate all the professors and tutors I met in Bochum.
The Laser and Photonics master course has been the best career decision I have made, as it has equipped me with comprehensive knowledge of laser applications in various fields. Combining this knowledge with my experience as a student assistant at the Photonics and Terahertz Technology chair, the transition from being a student to becoming an employee has been very smooth for me.
LAP helped a lot in pursuing my career! Especially, it gives a very nice background knowledge in the field of optics for a guy like me who was new to this field at the beginning of my master. Professors and teachers are extremely helpful, and you can tell that they, themselves, are so passionate about their field.
