The Faculty for Applied Sciences and Mechatronics (06) of the University of Applied Sciences Munich is active in teaching and applied research in photonics, laser technology and science. Our master programs are “Photonics”, “Micro- and Nanotechnology” and “Mechatronics”. Due to our high-end equipment, we are a competent partner for applied research and related services for industry, medical partners and science.
