‘Timely’ new undergrad program in photonics at University of Central Florida applauded by SPIE
Date:3/25/2013

Bellingham, Washington (PRWEB) March 25, 2013

A new undergraduate program approved this week at the University of Central Florida (UCF) will help the U.S. stay competitive in global technology as well as broaden the path for students seeking rewarding careers in the important field of optics and photonics, say leaders of SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics.

The UCF Board of Trustees yesterday announced a new Bachelor of Science degree program in photonics science and engineering, in partnership between the College of Optics and Photonics (CREOL) and the College of Engineering and Computer Science, said CREOL Director Bahaa Saleh. Students will receive their degrees from both colleges. The first classes of the new program will be offered this fall.

The curriculum is designed to prepare students for a wide variety of jobs in optics and photonics and to satisfy the requirements of ABET accreditation based on the criterion established by SPIE and IEEE for degrees in the field recently, Saleh said. ABET is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization that accredits college and university programs in the disciplines of applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology.

“I am personally excited to see this announcement because it serves as another indicator that optical and photonics engineering is finally coming of age as a discipline, providing a distinct program choice and career path for students to follow,” said Barry Shoop, professor and head of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York.
