Graduate Studies

The graduate program in Optics and Photonics has a deep focus in the areas of laser spectroscopy, biophotonics and nanophotonics. ,
Develop many challenging and exploratory projects based on optical technology and its applications to aid the health related sciences.
M.S. degree in Applied Optics
Students in the M.S. in Applied Optics program are required to complete a research thesis and an oral defense of it. The M.S. in Applied Optics has a typical duration of two to three years for full-time students. Students in the M.S. in Applied Optics program are required to complete a minimum of 30 course credits and 3 hours or thesis research (course list below).
Ph.D. degree in Optics
Students in the Ph.D. in Optics program are required to complete a dissertation and an oral defense. The Ph.D. in Optics has a typical duration of four to seven years for full-time students. The program is the first of its kind in the State of Delaware and the region and amongst about a dozen institutions in the nation that offer a Ph.D. in optics. Furthermore, it is designed to be linked with other related research and academic programs in the region, as well as the biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies in and around Delaware. Given the interdisciplinary opportunities that optics presents, students in the Ph.D. in Optics have the same opportunities. Students in the Ph.D. are required to complete a minimum of 36 course credits and 18 hours or thesis research (course list below).
