Head of the Physics/Electro-Optics Engineering Department:
Dr. Avi Karsenty
Degree: Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.)
Graduates are eligible for registration in the Architects' and Engineers' Registry.
The importance of applied physics in general, and electro-optics in particular, is increasing in all aspects of modern life. Modern electro-optics applications are being implemented in electronics, modern communications, medicine, data processing and energy. Electro-optics is especially important in the security field.
A graduate of the electro-optics faculty will have mastered planning optical systems and instruments, lasers and other light sources, photoelectric light detectors, electro-optic light modulation, holography, devices for television photography as well as night vision devices, and computer assisted lens design.
The faculty prepares electro-optics professionals for R&D work in the industry by providing them, in addition to their electro-optics studies, with a strong foundation in applied physics, electronics and computers. The program also prepares students for the pursuit of higher academic degrees in various fields of physics at other universities.
