International School of Photonics started MPhil degree course in Photonics from the year 2001 with an objective to train teachers in the area of Photonics. M.Phil. is the first research degree offered by Cochin University of Science and Technology. The new course has a relevance since most of the colleges in Kerala offer Optoelectronics as one of the optional papers for graduate level course in Physics. The two semester course of one year duration has a unique curriculum structure. Apart from two core papers related to Photonics, one paper is devoted to a course on Teaching and Learning Methodology in Science Education at Under graduate and Post graduate levels. In each semester students have to take advanced level courses in selected areas of photonics. Course work is taught by lectures and seminars and each student carries out an individual research project, with the support and supervision of a member of the teaching staff. The research has to be completed by the end of the second semester and results have to be submitted as a dissertation.
