The Master of Science (MS) program in Photonics is designed to prepare students for technically demanding careers in industry as well as for post-master’s graduate studies in photonics or related fields. More specifically: It requires students to build depth in a photonics specialization selected from areas such as lasers and applications, photonics materials and devices, and fiber optics and optical communications. It requires students to take at least 4 credits of an ECE course at the 700 level. It affords students the opportunity to flexibly choose graduate electives to explore technical or professional interests within engineering. It has a practicum requirement that is satisfied by doing a 4-credit thesis, a 4-credit project, or taking two project-intensive courses. Curriculum The MS Curriculum in Photonics requires completion of 32 graduate-level credits, while satisfying a specialization requirement and a practicum requirement. The remaining credits can be selected from a broad range of graduate electives. The credits of a course can only be used to fulfill the MS requirements if the student receives a grade of C or better in the course. Students should also maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 across all graduate-level courses taken while enrolled in the MS program.
