Flexible training in optics and photonics: an open window towards a modern society
Author(s): Clementina A. Timus

Paper Abstract

Characteristics of the education in optics in Romania in the last 15 years are discussed in a comparative way from a traditional system to the new ever changing proposals. The discussion concerns the situation in the previous time and recently, comments and problems to be solved. There is a recession all around the world as concerns the choice for a career in science and this is what we have to think about and try to find, what to do?

This is not new that Romania continues to offer qualified work force for other countries, as the best students leave for western or US universities. In the former time physics and electronics were the faculties, which attracted the option of the best students, as the career in science and high level education was of high prestige. The things are different now, when there are other more attractive careers as business, show biz, media etc.
