Winter School & Workshop 2020

The College of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona is proud to once again host the annual Optics and Photonics Winter School and Workshop January 6-10 2020. Optical Science and Engineering are areas of growing importance that are too often missing from traditional undergraduate science and engineering curricula. Often, aspects of optics & photonics are picked up as side topics in undergraduate and graduate courses along the way to obtaining more traditional STEM degrees. The 2020 Winter School will bring together a select group of undergraduate students for an overview of foundational topics in optics and their relation to current research. The 2020 Workshop  will provide a forum for both faculty and students from predominantly undergraduate institutions to share results, approaches and methodologies in optics and photonics research and education that are unique to the undergraduate setting.
