Author(s): Roger A. Lessard

Paper Abstract

Optics has been a designated domain for research since the foundation of the department of physics. One of the first graduate chooses Optics and trained most of the people working in Optics in Canada until 1985 when he retired. The Curriculum of the program in physics and later on in Physics engineering was pointing Optics as an course to take to get the diploma. Laboratories were developed to give to Physicists or Physics Engineers the tools they will need in their career. Nowadays, with the growing importance of Optics, Micro-programs were defined to permit to Mechanical, Electrical and Computer Engineers to acquire a basic knowledge of Physics. Optics Engineering is being developed.
