At the core of the Photonics Center’s mission is the education of future leaders in the field of photonics.

As an academic pillar for a leading large, private, urban University, Boston University’s Photonics Center offers students an unparalleled educational experience. Our program gives students the opportunity to develop their research and communication skills, and to engage with world-leading scholars in photonics. The Center immerses its students in an environment that fosters collaboration, mentorship, and the unique opportunity to work with photonics companies and staff on prototype development of products through its partnership with BU’s technology entrepreneurship program.
