Photonics & Optoelectronics

Photonics and optoelectronics are branches of science and technology that deal with the generation, manipulation, and detection of light (photons). While photonics focuses on the fundamental properties and applications of light, optoelectronics involves the integration of optics and electronics to create devices that can control and detect light. These fields play a crucial role in modern technology and have a wide range of applications in communications, imaging, sensing, energy, manufacturing, and more. New advances in nanophotonics, quantum optics, and integrated photonics are expected to shape the future of these fields and lead to even more innovative and impactful technologies that will enable faster communication, advanced medical imaging, renewable energy, and quantum computing applications.

The fields of Photonics and Optoelectronics are highly interdisciplinary, encompassing aspects of physics, engineering, materials science, and more. It requires a blend of theoretical understanding, practical skills, and the ability to adapt to rapidly evolving technologies. In this track, you will gain knowledge and competitive skills in key areas required to excel in these industries, including optics, photonics, electromagnetics, material science, and communications.
