METHOD OF INSTRUCTION: Distance Learning Higher Education

 

This distance learning education program is completed by a traditional correspondence instruction method. Once you sign up for the course, Bircham International University will send you (to your mailing address) the suggested textbooks. After reading the book, you will be asked to write a 20 to 35 pages report that reflect your understanding of the book. This report is equivalent to the exam and can be submitted by email or mail. Bircham International University will evaluate your written work. If passed, BIU will issue the corresponding diploma. For more instructions about BIU pedagogy, tutoring, and evaluation, please read our distance learning education study guide. More info...

 

Students enrolling into this distance education program should be aware that:
1. Location: Bircham International University needs a functional geographical location to ship the book and materials for successful completion of this program of study.
2. Communication: Email, courier, phone are key communication instruments with Bircham University that play an important role in the progress and support of this program of study.
3. Capacity: Any impediment, physical or psychological, to read a book and write a report must be communicated to Bircham International University prior to enrollment into this distance learning program.
4. Technology: No specific technology is required to complete this distance education program.
5. Language: Book reading and report writing in other language than English must be requested (and approved by BIU) prior to enrollment in any distance learning program.
6. Discrimination: There is no discrimination with respect to race, color, gender, beliefs or religion.
7. Age: Check the admission requirements for each distance education degree program. More info...

 

All information related to the distance learning degree programs is in English, although you may, upon request and approval, submit the required assignments in other languages.

 

Duration - Optics Online via distance learning

For a program of 21 credits, the estimated time for completion is 21 weeks. For 45 credits, the estimated time for completion will be 45 weeks, and so on. Calculations are approximate. The length of each distance learning degree program is calculated based on an average of 15 hours of learning per week. It also depends on the number of validated credits from previous knowledge and the level of commitment to the studies.

Nature of Light
This course examines the theories on the nature of light. It considers the corpuscular model, the light undulant model, wave surface concept, quantic and dual models, and the energetic model. It examines parallel and divergent light hazes impacting on a surface: reflection and refraction.
Academic Supervisor : Guido Fuortes

Spectroscopy
This course covers multiple topics in spectroscopy. These range from atomic emissions and absorption spectroscopy to determination and description of color, methods of excitation and detection, molecular electronic spectroscopy, instrumental characteristics, applications to quantitative determinations, sources and control of errors, and interferences.
Academic Supervisor : Guido Fuortes

Optics
This course examines the luminous beam concepts and refraction index. It deals with the origin of the refraction index and chromatic dispersion. It considers the laws of optics for homogeneous means and isotrops, some applications of the Fermat principle, the theorem of Malus-Dupin, the theory of optical representation, optical systems, object, and image.
Academic Supervisor : Guido Fuortes

Optical lenses
This course explains divergent and convergent lenses, focal points, focal distance, focal plans, power, increases, and composed systems. It considers cardinal elements: focus and focal plans, points and principal plans, points and nodal plans, paraxial equations of correspondence, and systems coupling: bulk lens, lenses, and mirror couplings.
Academic Supervisor : Guido Fuortes

Optics & the Human Eye
This course explores the pupils in optical systems, the eye as composed system, and the cardinal elements of a composed optical system.
Academic Supervisor : Guido Fuortes

Optical Alteration
This course examines emmetropia, ametropies, myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. It also considers distant vision systems: telescopes, eye wear, and optical prisms.
Academic Supervisor : Guido Fuortes

Optical Systems
This course examines the opening diaphragms of an optical system, the pupils of entry and exit, field diaphragm, lucarnas of entry and exit, and field size and limitations. It explores the optical systems and their aberrations. It studies the optical aberration concept, monochromatic aberrations, spherical aberration, comma, astigmatism, field curvature, distortion, chromatic aberrations, and achromatic doublets.
Academic Supervisor : Guido Fuortes

Optical Instruments
This course examines the photographic camera and other optical instruments: the magnifier, the microscope, and optical and digital image processing. It also explores visual processing models, ophthalmologic instrumentation, lasers, and biomedical applications.
