Master program "Applied Optics"

Mission of the Master Program is training of competitive graduates in the area of optical design and engineering. Features of the Program conclude in deep knowledge of optical engineering principles and skills in development of actual and innovative optical systems using modern special software. Learning outcomes of graduates provide successive professional and research activities. The Program has modular structure, consists of a considerable amount of elective courses and research.

The Program has international accreditation (EUR-ACE, 2014).

Program topics

  • Design of high-quality optical systems for different purposes (telescope, microscope, photo, projection, illumination systems etc.)
  • Development of optical and optoelectronic devices
  • Computer simulation and software development for optical system design
  • Optical image modeling, processing and reconstruction
  • Design of optical devices and CAD technologies.
