Course Description: 
Photonic Communications Engineering is a two-semester course that consists of two parts, PCE I and PCE II. Each part is comprised of three units. PCE I A covers the principles of guided wave optics. PCE I B covers the principles of optoelectronic and electrooptic devices. PCE I C covers components used in optical communications. Sections A, B and C are each 1 credit and self-contained so that they can be taken in any combination. When all three units are taken together, PCE I is designed as a survey that provides the student with firm grounding in the most important devices used for photonic communications engineering. PCE II covers optical communication systems.
