Welcome to the first issue of the CREOL Highlights Newsletter! As a substitute of the printed CREOL Highlights, which was distributed periodically in previous years, this electronic newsletter aims to provide our CREOL friends with links to news, events, and highlights that are regularly posted on our website. For example, today's newsletter announces a major milestone in our history: the initiation of a new BS degree in Photonics Science & Engineering. The newsletter will be sent on a monthly basis, and occasionally more frequently when there are more timely news.
New BS program in Photonic Science and Engineering
BS Optics On Thursday, March 21, 2013, the UCF Board of Trustees has approved a new Bachelor of Science degree program in photonics science and engineering. The new program will be a partnership between The College of Optics and Photonics and the College of Engineering and Computer Science, and the students will receive their degree from both colleges.
The curriculum is designed to prepare students for a wide variety of jobs in optics and photonics and to satisfy the requirements of ABET accreditation based on the criterion for degrees in optics/photonics, which was recently established by SPIE and IEEE. Students will be provided with knowledge and lab experience in geometrical optics, physical optics, optical materials, and photonics devices and systems, striking a balance between general engineering breadth and basic knowledge and practical skills for solving problems and designing and building working optical systems. This will be achieved by providing hands-on training in laboratories that accompany the core courses, requiring a two-semester capstone senior design project, and encouraging participation in a summer internship program with local industry. The first classes of the new program are to be offered in Fall 2013. more...
