Spie studentchapter vub 01

Since the start in April 2006, we group both master and PhD students in photonics at Vrije Universiteit Brussels. As a member of the SPIE Student Chapter, you enjoy several benefits with broad access to resources, and networking opportunities at our academic, industrial or social events, that can make a difference in your career.

Our goal is to get together with students, sharing inspiring experiences within and outside our community in photonics.

Next to online courses, discounts for conferences, access to grants and online journals we also organize and support several scientific and social events.
