Gain the expertise you need to become an innovator in the next wave of modern optical technologies.

Optical devices and systems are ubiquitous in our modern world. Every day we utilize optics from the optical fibers that carry all of the information of the internet to the displays, cameras, and optical sensors in modern smartphones. This diversity of optics means that optical engineers are in demand across a range of industries.

The optical engineering concentration at Stevens uniquely combines engineering with a specialization in optics. This provides a broad foundation of core engineering skills in general topics ranging from circuits to thermodynamics, coupled with in-depth training in the design of optical instrumentation, laser design, metrology, optical communications technology, and modern photonic devices.

The student centric focus of Stevens combined with the personal instruction of globally renowned department faculty–including two fellows of the Optical Society of America and an editor of Optics Letters–ensures that students receive the attention and support needed to achieve their goals.

The Bachelor of Engineering program in engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET. Enrollment and Graduation Data
