Graduate education in Optoelectronic and Photonic Engineering (OEPE) at Koç University is offered through an interdisciplinary program with the objective of giving the students the fundamental physical scientific and applied engineering knowledge required for the design, simulation, realization, and characterization of OEPE materials, devices, systems, and applications.



The OEPE program has both theoretical and experimental research activities. The graduates of the OEPE program will work at frontiers of technology with a broad spectrum of application areas: from automotive and home lighting to information and communications, from life sciences and health to displays, from remote sensing to nondestructive diagnostics, and from material processing to photovoltaics.

Individuals with B.S. degrees in electrical and electronic engineering, optics, optoelectronics, physics, and related science and engineering disciplines should apply for graduate study in the OEPE Program.
