Acerca del Curso

This course can also be taken for academic credit as ECEA 5600, part of CU Boulder’s Master of Science in Electrical Engineering degree. Optical instruments are how we see the world, from corrective eyewear to medical endoscopes to cell phone cameras to orbiting telescopes. When you finish this course, you will be able to design, to first order, such optical systems with simple mathematical and graphical techniques. This first order design will allow you to develop the foundation needed to begin all optical design as well as the intuition needed to quickly address the feasibility of complicated designs during brainstorming meetings. You will learn how to enter these designs into an industry-standard design tool, OpticStudio by Zemax, to analyze and improve performance with powerful automatic optimization methods....

Really nice course with very clear explanations of the principles of optical engineering and learn how to use ZEMAX Opticstudio to simulate your optical system

An excellent course that teaches you geometric optics and gets you started with ZEMAX. Some of the quizzes have typos/bugs in them, but this is a minor gripe.

Good lectures and presentations in this course. A sound and systematic basis for the next courses to follow.

Generally good, but some things should be described more detailly. For example, sign convention should be explained better, especially for mirrors. And in some tests the questions appear that were not discussed in the lectures, such as microscope, and it's necessary just to use some formula without deep understanding in this case. But as a whole the course content is interesting and really seems to provide a set of powerful optical design tools.

I got to learn about ray optics and all the basic mathematical tools needed for an optical system design. Also got a hands on experience with Zemax OpticStudio. The assignments and homework problems are really good. But the best part is the capstone project at the end.

Great course, but the tool (Demo version Zemax) is not very useful because of the removal of several important features (e.g. save, undo and limited precision).

Really valuable introduction to optical design, I learned a lot! It takes dedication though, but it's totally worth it.

Excellent content and instruction. Difficult to get feedback on problems with software and quiz answer input.

Great content and teacher.

The course evaluation needs some debugging and problems should be better explained.

Overall the content was good. And it provided an initial path on how to go about optical designing. I sometimes feel the course does not have enough support to clarify my doubts. A chat box where a course candidate can clarify the doubts will be of great help.

Good info - but assumes a decent working knowledge of optics. Learned quite a bit from the capstone project, but the exam was rough (lots of curveballs).

It was not easy to pass the course as the materials given is not in the level of the assignments!

This course took me months to complete because of messed up recognizing the answering system.

If you are okay, that the videos only touch each subject but you are suppose to be a expert in the quizzes and especially in the capstone project, then this course is for you. But don't expect detailed explanations or enough practise, to go through the course with comfort! You will not finish the course because of the capstone project unless you have prior knowledge of the subject!
