MS in Photonics

 

Master of Science Degree in Photonics 

 

The main objective of Queens College Photonics program, leading to Master of Science degree, is to prepare graduates for immediate employment in highly rewarding (both intellectually and financially) positions in photonics/optics related industries. In this innovative two-year program, designed for students interested in technological applications of Physics, students receive rigorous academic training in photonics and related disciplines while gaining valuable workplace skills — through extensive lab work, additional business courses, industrial internships, and team projects—that will make them more valuable to future employers.

" Preparing your students for corporate jobs will benefit both them and their prospective employers.  Building business acumen and operational capabilities in technical talent will make them highly marketable candidates for jobs!"

- Carrie Kochek,
Director of Human Resources Business Partner at Verizon

Photonics is the area of applied physics and technology which studies and exploits properties of light. More and more technologies rely on light to control machines, record and transfer information, provide security and perform multiple other tasks. The ever increasing role of photonics in our social and economic life is reflected in the recent development of the National Photonic Initiative (NPI) (www.lightourfuture.org) – an alliance of industry, academia, and government seeking to increase awareness of photonics.
