Student story: Charles Rambo, Photonics

Charles Rambo had heard of Finland’s reputation as one the happiest countries in the world, so one day he decided to come and see what it’s actually like to live and study here. He got accepted onto the Master's Degree Programme in Photonics at the University of Eastern Finland – and with it, the chance to experience Finnish culture and how it differs from life in his home country. While many photonics students aim at jobs in modern technology companies, Charles wants to go into academia and teaching. He’s gained a lot of specific know-how in physics and photonics, which he aims to pass onto others.

An important part of the program is our group research projects which are centered around some of the high level facilities that we have at UEF.
