California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) has an active photonics-related program. The thrusts of the program are coursework, extensive photonic educational laboratories, an SPIE student branch chapter, and a new Project-Based Learning Institute (PBLI) to promote joint projects with industry.This paper will describe our program for a multidisciplinary approach to photonics education at the undergraduate and master’s degree level.
