Paper Abstract

The employers in optical engineering fields hope to recruit students who are capable of applying optical principles to solve engineering problems and have strong laboratory skills. In Zhejiang University, a hierarchy curriculum for practical skill training has been constructed to satisfy this demand. This curriculum includes “Introductive practicum” for freshmen, “Opto-mechanical systems design”, “Engineering training”, “Electronic system design”, “Student research training program (SRTP)”, “National University Students’ Optical-Science-Technology Competition game”, and “Offcampus externship”. Without cutting optical theory credit hours, this hierarchy curriculum provides a step-by-step solution to enhance students’ practical skills. By following such a hierarchy curriculum, students can smoothly advance from a novice to a qualified professional expert in optics. They will be able to utilize optical engineering tools to design, build, analyze, improve, and test systems, and will be able to work effectively in teams to solve problems in engineering and design.
