Course Description: 
This class provides opportunities for students to learn practical engineering skills for developing optical systems. Students will work in groups on engineering projects and case studies that provide the opportunity to learn systems engineering skills first-hand. Some examples of optical applications that may be covered are imaging, spectroscopy, illumination, adaptive optics, communication, detection and metrology. These systems will be used to teach fundamentals of systems engineering, optical system design, quantifying performance for optical systems, specification of optical components and professional engineering skills.
Senior (424A) or graduate (524A) status, junior (424A) status with instructor permission

Academic Integrity

According to the Arizona Code of Academic Integrity, “Integrity is expected of every student in all academic work.

Co-authored work of any kind is unacceptable. Misappropriation of exams before or after they are given will be considered academics misconduct.

Misconduct of any kind will be prosecuted and may result in any or all of the following:

  • Reduction of grade
  • Failing grade
  • Referral to the Dean of Students for consideration of additional penalty, i.e., notation on a student’s transcript re: academic integrity violation, etc.
