ECE Graduate Admissions
The University of Illinois has a long history of excellence in
research and education. The Illinois Program for Photonics and Optoelectronics
at the University of Illinois was formed in 2002 by a group of faculty
with research interests in optics, optoelectronics, and photonics
systems. Our faculty members are from various laboratories
(Everitt Laboratory, Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory, the Beckman
Institute, Coordinated Science Laboratory, Loomis Laboratory, and
Materials Research Laboratory) on campus and conduct research on
many exciting projects.
