Course Description

The aim of the class is to learn the basics of optical information and communication engineering and to have advanced expertise. To be able to acquire research and research abilities as a master's degree and lead research and development from a broad perspective. Students will report the relationship optical information and communication engineering and their research themes.

Course Objectives

1. Students can description an overview of optical information and communication engineering.
2. Students can explain the fiber optics are used for long-distance, high-capacity transmission.
3. Students can explain the relationship between optical information and communication engineering and their research themes.

Grading Policy

Explanation of English materials used in class (50%) and report on optical information and communication engineering and technology related to student research themes (50%).
Students get feedback and advice from a technical and industrial perspective on the materials and data used in the course.
