MEng in Photonics and Optical Sciences
Through Duke's Fitzpatrick Institute of Photonics (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 research of the FIP faculty is reflected in the classes we offer through our Master of Engineering in Photonics and Optical Sciences. MEng 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 exceptional opportunities established through the Fitzpatrick Institute of Photonics (FIP), the Corporate Partnership Program, and the Carolinas Photonics Consortium, make Duke a great choice for graduate studies in photonics and optical sciences.
