The Unit of Electro-Optical Engineering (EOPE)is dedicated to research and education in electro-optical and photonics engineering and is currently the only university department in Israel authorized to grant graduate degrees (M.Sc. and Ph.D.) in electro-optics. The Unit's multidisciplinary research places it at the vanguard of the optics and photonics community, both nationally and internationally.
The aim of the M.Sc. program in Electro-Optical Engineering is to provide students with research expertise and advanced knowledge in electro-optical and photonics engineering. M.Sc. students carry out a thesis research supervised by an EOPE faculty member or by relevant faculty members from other departments. Students graduating with an M.Sc. degree are qualified for senior R&D positions in the industry, and may continue towards the Ph.D. studies. The fields of specialization in the EOPE M.Sc. program include: imaging systems and image processing; optoelectronic devices; bio-medical optics; nanophotonics and integrated nanophotonics; quantum and non-linear optics; optical communications; plasmonics and metamaterials.
The M.Sc. program is a two year thesis (research) track program.
