About ILO

The Laser Technology and Photonics Division has been one of the main pillars in the Faculty of Technology for more than two decades at the University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer. High-performing and research-intensive working groups have been established at the Institute for Laser and Optics. A substantial amount of third-party funding as well as university-internal funding are expanding the excellent equipment yielding research and development at a high level. Scientific work groups and research activities are implemented in the international Bachelor and Master study courses Engineering Physics. These courses are offered jointly by UAS Emden/Leer and the University of Oldenburg since 1998 and proved to be extremely attractive by more than 1000 graduates from as of now 66 nations worldwide. Fundamental science and application-oriented research being the strengths at U Oldenburg and UAS Emden/Leer are particularly interconnected.
