From Academia to Industry

Published on

Our Fellows choose varied career paths after their LA³NET projects have finished: some decide to continue research in academia while others take up positions in industry.

LA³NET Fellow Mateusz Tyrk has recently started a new job as an Optics Application Engineer in PowerPhotonic ltd. in Scotland. He will now be responsible not only for technological design, but also for identifying the markets and customers for the products developed.

PowerPhotonic is a global leader in the design and manufacture of precision micro-optics for laser applications. It's also a pioneer in the use of laser micro-machining for the manufacturing of precision micro-optics products.

In parallel Matt, who for the last three years was hosted by the University of Dundee, is working on his PhD thesis that he plans to submit soon.
