Course on Fundamental Optical Design in March and April

Fundamental Optical Design (6 ECTS)

Please follow the information on the organising of the Optical Design course on the web page.

The course is Organised by the University of Eastern-Finland and it is a PREIN and Photonics Finland event.
The course takes place in Helsinki region between March 9- April 24, 2020 ​​​​​​​

Course description
The aim of the course is to teach the fundamentals of optical design, especially to provide theoretical foundations of geometrical optics combined with basic design examples. After this course you will have the required theoretical and practical skills to start optical design.  

Target group
