Has optics finally found its rightful place in physics curriculum in universities of Eastern Africa?
Author(s): Alphonse Niyibizi

Paper Abstract

For a long time, optics has been the "neglected child" in physics university curriculum in Kenya and indeed in East Africa as a whole! But due to emerging applications of laser technology and photonics, some physics departments have started developing undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in optics, lasers and photonics. What are the challenges and chances of success?
