PHOTONICS & OPTICAL ENGINEERING
BRIDGEWATER STATE UNIVERSITY
Photons are particles of light that can transmit and process information replacing electrons in analog computers and chips, mobile phones, medical equipment, and biological, chemical and spatial sensors, while providing a promising route for future quantum communications.
Imagine downloading an entire season of the latest binge-worthy series to your phone in seconds, or quickly detecting and processing biological and chemical agents. Photonics will help to make that possible.
• At BSU, you will have unparalleled opportunities to engineer laser and optical devices in the only undergraduate. Photonics and Optical Engineering program in New England
• BSU’s state-of-the-art labs feature nearly $2 million in lasers and detectors.
• Massachusetts is a world-wide leader in this new technology and growing market.
“Our industry desperately needs more optics and photonics education at all levels.
It has been said that the 20th century was the ‘century of the electron’ and that
the 21st century will be the ‘century of the photon,’ so we’d best get ready!”
