Those interested in studying engineering with various possibilities for further study are well advised to study optical engineering. The study offers the possibility to work creatively and innovatively and offers good prospects in a rapidly growing industry.

What is the challenge of optical engineering in double study?

Optics, computer science, electronics and mechatronics : The Optical Engineering Studium, which until recently was called "Optoelectronics and Laser Technology", combines several engineering disciplines in one study. The studies thus offer a broad education with attractive specialisation options.

Thanks to the various fields of expertise and the possibility of expanding on them, specialists will be trained in the various areas of optoelectronics. The studies cover three different fields of expertise: optoelectronics, computer science and optomechanics. In all fields, the properties of light play a key role.

Where is optical engineering?

The possible applications of optical engineering are extremely wide-ranging, from medical technology to photography and the automotive industry.

Automotive : Optical sensors for the automation of manufacturing processes
Industry : Industrial robot measuring systems
Medicine: Optical measuring methods and microscopy
Ophthalmology: Laser systems for the treatment of eye diseases

These are just a few of the many areas where optical engineering is used. Whether it's a smartphone camera or a photo lens: Such products can no longer be excluded from our daily lives. And the importance of optical engineering is growing: For example, in the field of the smart home or virtual reality.

What can I do after studying optical engineering?

The study offers a broad education in engineering with different possibilities for further education. The future prospects vary depending on the specialisation.

With a bachelor's degree in optical engineering, the following areas and sectors are of interest :

  • automotive sector
  • medicine
  • optical industry
  • research
  • Product management
  • Optical communication
  • light design

Optical engineering is used in many areas. Whether in the development of automotive headlights, in the search for new laser measuring instruments or in the automation of production processes: An optical engineer is very flexible and is not tied to a single sector.
