Optical Engineering

In this module learners will be made aware and be expected to apply a range of modelling approaches to physically describe and design standard optical systems for use in a range of technical area and products.

Most modules require a 2.2 degree in a related discipline or equivalent professional experience. Should you have any queries regarding your eligibility, please contact us at info@advancecentre.ie

N.B. Required Mathematics: Complex numbers and functions, Matrices, Fourier transform (continuous and discrete) Physics: Conservation of energy, SI unit system Engineering: linear systems, signal processing (sampling, filtering) Optics: refraction, reflection, diffraction, interference, magnification. Pre-requisition module Electromagnetic Waves

On successful completion of this module, learners will be able to:

1. Apply wave optics and the principles of optical signal processing to the design and engineering of photonic platforms for use in imaging, sensing, metrology and holographic systems.

2. Interpret the results produced by a range of metrology and optical signal processing systems.

3. Understand the workings of and application of both analogue imaging and digital (computation) imaging processes.
