Photonics And Electronics Track

Photonics and Electronics Track

The Photonics and Electronics track shows the flow of courses in the Undergraduate and Master track, including prerequisite, mandatory courses, and electives associated with developing the devices, systems, and technologies used to implement modern telecommunications services. UG students will take 1 shared prerequisite and elective for each path and 2 other prerequisites for Photonics. The Photonics path a choice between 2 recommended electives, followed by 2 additional electives. For the Electronics path is 1 recommended elective, followed by 3 additional electives. MS students will take 2 mandatory electives, as well as 1 shared elective for each path. The Photonics path requires 3 of 5 other electives to complete and the Electronics path requires 5 other electives to be completed.
