2013 - The year in review

Recognitions and awards, a summer Photon Camp, the Center for Freeform Optics, endowed Scholarships, and a Chaired Professorship are a few highlights. With an inspired focus on outreach, 2013 became a year of significant growth in undergraduate and MS student numbers. Despite government uncertainties, our faculty remained concentrated and productive, maintaining strong leadership, and continuing ground-breaking research. International collaboration expanded, with MOU’s in five countries resulting in increased opportunities.  

The year 2014 dawns brightly, and we look forward to continued excellence.
