People who don't have to design (specify, test, ...) optical systems but are working in projects with optics together with optical designers and want to know more about optical principles, will benefit from this application-oriented course. By learning the ‘optical language’ and understanding the principles of optical systems, non-optical engineers are able to collaborate more effectively with their optical expert team members. This makes the whole system engineering team more successful.

'Applied optics training shifts focus to demos and experiments'.
We offer this course in:
- Delft, the Netherlands (8 afternoon + evening sessions);
- Eindhoven, the Netherlands (15 afternoon sessions).

People with a non-optical background (e.g. electronics, mechanics, chemistry), who work in projects with optics and want to increase their level of understanding of optical principles and applications. Technical college/university level.
The lessons include many demonstrations and are intermixed with hands-on sessions, as:
The 5 hands-on sessions take 4 hours, the other sessions take 3 hours.
Study load excluding the class sessions: 3 hours a week.
Lectures, demonstrations, hands-on sessions, tour, home assignments. Course material: course notes, book. Award: certificate in case home work results are sufficient.

This course is certified by the European society for precision engineering & nanotechnology (euspen) and the Dutch Society for Precision Engineering (DSPE) and leads to the ECP2-certificate in case homework results are sufficient.
‘This training makes me want to design and test optical systems. Very good.’
'Very good, in details, time for questions, it fits to my needs as a lens designer.'
'Good training, good balance between theory vs practice.'
'Optics excursion: Very nice, good explanation and nice examples.'
'Very interesting training if you want to know more about optics and how it is applied. Nice diverse content and real life examples.'
