Professional experience in photonics
Test your theoretical knowledge of photonoics in the real-world through mutually beneficial projects with industry professionals.
Through PACE, photonics students have studied the operation principle of an existing fibre-optic hydrophone and its performance and characterisation method to detect the localisation of leaks within an urban water pipe system.
Over the course of the project students gained important hands-on experience and new industry knowledge with the characterisation and experimentation of the sensor system along with a solid understanding in the fibre-optic technology and its application as an acoustic sensor.
No matter what you decide to study at Macquarie, PACE has an activity for you. Learn more about the opportunities available through PACE.
