On February 21, 2012, UC Irvine is presenting a free Webinar to describe its Optical Engineering and Optical Instrument Design certificate programs.

Irvine, CA--On Tuesday, February 21, 2012, the University of California, Irvine (UC Irvine) is presenting a free Webinar entitled "Fundamentals for Optical Engineering: Information Planning Session - Enter the Optics Age" in order to describe the Optical Engineering and Optical Instrument Design certificate programs at the UC Irvine Extension. UC Irvine says that the Optical Engineering and Optical Instrument Design Certificate Programs address the growing demand for skilled optics professionals who can conceptualize, design and manufacture optical and optomechanical components, systems, and instruments.

To register for the free Webinar and review the certificate program details, please go tohttp://unex.uci.edu/certificates/engineering/optics/.

The Optical Engineering Program gives students the skills and experience needed to enter this growing field. The program will also benefit those entry and mid-level professionals who need to broaden their knowledge and improve their career options. The Optical Instrument Design Program provides advanced study options for experienced optical engineering professionals allowing them to address a wider range of optical and optomechanical design issues. The elective courses provide an opportunity for students to develop specialized skills related to their professional needs or personal interests.

Candidates for both programs need to have completed EECS_X493, Introduction to Lens Design or possess equivalent experience or education. The Optical Engineering Certificate and the Optical Instrument Design Certificate are awarded separately upon the completion of 15 credit units (6 required and 9 electives credit units), with a grade of “B” or better. Training is available at UC Irvine, or at a company's on-site location under the "Corporate Training" program.
