Implementation of photonics program at the undergraduate level
Author(s): Salahuddin Qazi

Paper Abstract

In response to widespread applications of photonics and increasing needs of industry for qualified personnel, a B.S. program in Photonics was implemented in the fall of 1989 at the State University of New York (SUNY) Institute of Technology, Utica, New York. The curriculum was developed recognizing the strong interdependence of photonics and electronics. It was also made flexible so that the students could move to other areas of science and engineering. This article describes the program and reviews the current applications of photonics which affect the program curriculum. It is expected that the graduates from this program will be better equipped to find suitable jobs and function more effectively in industry.
