M.Eng. in Photonics and Optical Sciences

The Master of Engineering degree is an 18-24 month non-thesis program with an industry internship. M.Eng. students train with the very best people in the optics field and pair that classroom experience with an understanding of core business principles. Our graduates have the technical savvy to move discoveries forward and the business skills to shepherd important advances to realization.

The research of the FIP faculty is reflected in the classes we offer through our Master of Engineering in Photonics and Optical Sciences. Through FIP, researchers are making strides across many areas of photonics and optical science. These include making scalable quantum computing a reality, helping doctors do a better job of eradicating cancer, and developing the next generation of high throughput imaging systems.

The exceptional opportunities established through the Fitzpatrick Institute for Photonics, the Corporate Partnership Program, and the Carolinas Photonics Consortium, make Duke a great choice for graduate studies in photonics and optical sciences.

M.Eng. students will complete the Core Industry Preparatory Courses and Internship, three technical electives, two of which will be selected from similar areas of concentration and Departmental Requirements including:

  • One advanced mathematics/computational course
  • Two Optics/Photonics courses
  • One technical optics/photonics course from the BME department and one from the ECE department
