Besides research, the growing influx of optical companies has necessitated a requirement for pool of candidates with suitable background in optical design, manufacturing and testing. Apart from the PhD students, there is also a need to retrain or grow the talent pool in this area. This will be done through a specialization in Optical Engineering embedded in the existing MSc program on Precision Engineering. In addition to the MSc degree, a certificate would be given to the students. This certificate is similar to that offered at the Optical Sciences Centre in Arizona, except that we require the students to do an industry based project in addition to the three courses.
