SPIE is an international society advancing an interdisciplinary approach to the science and application of light
SPIE is an international membership society, serving scientists and engineers in industry, academia, and government, as well as companies producing leading-edge products. SPIE constituents work in a wide variety of fields that utilize some aspect of optics and photonics, which is the science and application of light. More specifically, optics is a branch of physics that examines the behavior and properties of light and the interaction of light with matter. Photonics is the science and technology of generating, controlling, and detecting photons, which are particles of light

About university
Optics is at the heart of many technologies being developed for medicine, defence, environmental monitoring, advanced computers and manufacturing.Optical technology is the basis for a range of new products such as DVDs, digital cameras and flat panel displays, laser scanners, biomedical instrumentation and communications systems. That's why employers are interested in highly qualified graduates in the fields of optics, optoelectronics and photonics for research and development, as well as for manufacturing positions in industries including telecommunications, optical components, biomedicine, sensing, and defence all over the world.
Since the first years of its existence and till today optical and optoelectronic devices department has been a leader in preparing the experts on optical and optoelectronic system designing.
Optical and optoelectronic devices department prepare the specialists on three standards of studying: Bachelor Degree Program, Specialist (Engineer) Degree Program, Master Degree Program on specialty 0911 "Laser and optoelectronic engineering",- as well as specialists of the higher skills: Candidate (PhD) and Doctor of Science (DSc).
This site contain information about microcontrollers, up-to-date IT technologies and their application in optics and photonics.
