Graduate Course

To teach and train the greatest minds for the 21st century, the curriculum in DOP is designed to offer full-spectrum courses from the fundamental, advanced, to applications in optics and photonics. In particular, we put more emphasis on the basics of optics/photonics to help students lay the groundwork for their future advanced research and work in the fast-paced corporate environment. The core courses and many electives in graduate programs are lectured in English.

Required DOP Core Courses

The Department requires all graduate students to take the following courses:

  Description Credits
OS6003 Fourier Optics 3
OS6015 Geometrical Optics 3
OS7149 Crystal Optics 3
OS7051 Optics Laboratory 3

In addition, students must complete two zero-credit seminar courses:
  • OS6001 Seminar
  • OS6040 Seminar

For those who did not pass the undergraduate Optics, Electromagnetism, and/or Microelectronics prior to their graduate studies in DOP, they have to take at least one undergraduate course in Optics, Electromagnetism, and/or Microelectronics. The credits thus earned cannot be applied toward the degree.

  Description Credits
OS2002 Optics I 3
OS3003 Optics II 3
OS3015 Optics III 3
OS2003 Electromagnetism I 3
OS2004 Electromagnetism II 3
OS2005 Microelectronics I 3
OS2006 Microelectronics II 3
