Master of Engineering in Optical Engineering

published: 2017-11-08 09:49:31       hits: 

Optical Engineering, which mainly focuses on Light Information Acquisition, Optical Transmission, Optical Switching, Optical Information Processing and Photoelectric Image Display, has wide applications in the industry, and becomes an important discipline in the current information technology field.

The teaching and research area of Optical Engineering in UESTC covers the theory and application of the whole optical engineering discipline, especially strong in optical communication, photonic integration, infrared and sensing technology, panel display and imaging technology. The discipline has undertaken a number of national key research projects, receiving sufficient funds, and wining several state or provincial awards. The main research direction of this discipline has stepped into the leading position in China, also having a certain international influence.

1.   Objectives

Masters of the discipline are expected to have a rather profound knowledge of the cutting-edge research and trend of the field and a relatively sound grasp of the theoretical and systematic expertise, as are able to master corresponding experimental skills, to be proficient in the use of computers, familiar at least with one simulation software closely related to this discipline, able to contribute academic papers and exchange views in conferences, and to demonstrate rigorous spirits in scientific approaches and working style and professional ethics, so as to be competent in research, development, teaching or management jobs at research institutes and universities.

A Survey of China and Comprehensive Chinese are compulsory for international master candidates who, on graduation, are to be able to communicate in Chinese to some extent.

2.   Orientations

1.   Optic communication and optic integration

2.   Photoelectric Detection and System Integration

3.   Sensitive electronics and sensor network

4.   Display and Imaging                                      5.  Microwave photonics

6.   Photoelectric measurement and control technology

3.   Duration

The duration set for master candidates is two years full-time. An extension can be applied for by those who cannot finish their courses in time owing to objective causes, yet altogether four years is the last due.

4.   Progression and Requirements

The minimum sum total credits for international students of master candidates are 26. Master candidates should complete the course work of no less than a total of 24 credits (out of which at least 15 credits should be acquired from degree courses), compulsory sections of no less than 2 credits, complete the thesis independently, and pass the degree thesis defense.

The supervisor responsibility mechanism is adopted in the education for international master candidates. The supervisor is responsible for the student’s making of personal study plan, the choice of courses, and the completion of the degree thesis. The personal study plan cannot be changed without permission of the supervisor.

During the course work, according to specifications by the discipline, the student is to pass examinations held for the degree courses and examinations or assessments held for the other optional courses. Of all the degree courses, common core courses are compulsory. Master candidates are allowed to choose 1~2 inter-disciplinary core courses as their degree courses under supervisors’ guidance. Degree courses can be taken to substitute non-degree courses, but not vice versa. International students of Chinese language abilities can apply to take courses given in Chinese to local full-time graduate students and acquire corresponding credits if pass.

Those who fail to meet the requirements as described above can fill up the gap by repetition or make-up in the limit of one year. Those who fail to meet the credit requirements even till the end of the due time are to be terminated.

6.   Compulsory Sections

The compulsory sections for international students of master candidates include two parts, a candidate is required to complete the following aspects:

1) Elective Competence Development Courses: through introducing the academic cutting edge knowledge, culture, arts and sports, etc, such courses are given to improve the master candidates’ comprehensive competence. A candidate should take at least one course and get one credit after assessment.

2) Academic Activities: to enliven academic atmosphere and to further and broaden master candidates’ scope of knowledge, one should attend at least five academic lectures within and out of UESTC, and fill in the Academic Activities Registration Form and get the official stamp upon attendance. One credit can be granted to the candidate when he/she succeeds in completing the above procedures.

7.   Degree Thesis

All degree thesis problems shall refer to UESTC Regulations for Postgraduate Degree Conferring.
