Carnegie STEM Girls: Optical Engineer

Optical engineers have seen the light!

Light is fascinating because of its dual nature as particles and waves–that is, light acts both like a particle and a wave. Isn’t that neat? Optical engineers study the properties of light to design products such as microscopes, telescopes, lasers, and optical fibers. Optical engineers require a bachelor’s degree.
