Optics Education Directory reaches students and educators

Here is your opportunity to advertise in the Optics and Photonics Education: Global Directory of Programs in Optics and Photonics.

The Optics and Photonics Education Directory is a print catalog distributed to over 6,500 people, organizations, universities, and schools each year. It is sent free of charge to educators, students, libraries, institutions, and also distributed at major industry meetings, such as Photonics West.

Reach Students with your Message!  Your advertisement will tell your story to many thousands of students and graduates planning their education and their careers. 

If you hire new graduates or offer internships to students in optics, photonics, physics and engineering-related fields, this is a great place to gain visibility.

This is your chance to gain build visibility of your institution or organization for recruiting purposes.

Colleges and Universities:

  • Tell your story in detail
  • Differentiate your program and institution 
  • Increase your collegiate enrollment


  • Advertise their internships and entry-level positions
  • Recruit the best new talent
  • Begin developing brand awareness with tomorrow's buyers

You can select from a range of traditional advertising options, plus a limited number of "advertorial" organizational profiles, which blend interviews, text and photographs in the form of a 2-4 page story.

SPIE began publishing the Optics Education Directory in 1985. SPIE and the OSA started working together in 2003 to co-publish the Directory jointly as a public service. The information is also available online at www.OpticsEducation.org.
