Graduate Program in Electro-Optics
The programs of study for the Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in electro-optics are interdisciplinary programs administered by the School of Engineering with the cooperative support of the College of Arts and Sciences. Established in 1983, the Electro-Optics Program relies on a strong working relationship between the School of Engineering and the Department of Physics. It is a collaborative effort on the part of many scientists and engineers on campus as well as researchers at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and various commercial companies. By its very nature, the program draws from many disciplines, primarily physics and electrical engineering. There are natural connections between chemistry, biology, materials science and other fields of engineering as well. With today's rapidly advancing technologies, the program has a strong foundation and the potential to continue to grow well into the future.
