  • Course description
    The Physics and Optical Engineering Department offers a terminal masters degree in Optical Engineering which prepares students for jobs in industry. A bachelor of science in science or engineering is required for admission to this program. The program of study includes five core courses in Optical Engineering, four elective courses, a thesis project, and an oral thesis defense. The thesis project will, as far as possible, address a "real-world" problem that would be of mutual interest to an industrial sponsor, the student and the student's advisory committee chairperson. Normally, it takes a student five quarters to complete the requirements for the M.S. (Optical Engineering) degree.

    The Physics and Optical Engineering Department also offers an undergraduate area minor in Optical Engineering and a B.S. (OE) degree. The M.S. (Optical Engineering) program complements the undergraduate program.
