Geometric Optics stops being offered in Spring 2022


Hi Students –


So just wanted to get your attention on this – in SPRING 2022, Geometric Optics will not be offered.  We are going to move this to being offered only in the FALL of each academic year starting in FALL 2021.  Geo will be offered this upcoming Spring 2021. 


Let me know if you have any questions about this – I just learned of this and if we need to make changes to academic plans we can.  Note that Geo is only a prerequisite for Senior Design, so you just need to have it completed prior to starting Senior Design I.
