About

Optical Sciences offered by the University of Arizona prepares students to enter challenging careers in the optics industry or to continue the pursuit of knowledge with doctoral degrees.

Overview

Career

Its graduates become engineers, designers and technical managers. They work in hardware design, medical and biomedical technology, lasers and electro-optical systems, fiber optics and communications, measurements, manufacturing, and consumer technology. They work for large corporations, small companies, government agencies, universities, hospitals and research centers. Many even work for themselves, having started successful businesses or gone into consulting.
