The Industrial Associates (IA) Program

IA Home > Membership


The Institute of Optics has a long tradition of interacting with companies and corporations through research collaborations, consulting arrangements, work in professional societies, and a variety of informal exchanges.

Since the overwhelming majority of our students enter the work force after graduating, industry clearly benefits from participation in the Industrial Associates Program. It is equally beneficial to industry when our educational programs can expose students to state-of-the-art laboratory instrumentation and measurement techniques.

If asked, our Current Partners would agree that our educational program and the services we provide to the optics industry could not continue without a strong Industrial Associates Program.
