Welcome to the Optics and Vision Postgraduate Programme website.
Our Programme is the fruit of our efforts to create a multidisciplinary environment to prepare young scientists who wish to specialize in physiological optics and vision sciences. Three dynamic departments of the University of Crete participate in the programme. The Department of Medicine is the programme coordinator, and in close collaboration with the Departmen of Materials Science and Technology, and the Department of Mathematics/Applied Mathematics, are the programme's key contributors. The postgraduate programme in Optics and Vision is unique in Greece and one of only a few in Europe.
Our ambition is that our programme, while providing strong theoretical foundations, also should provide a potent starting point for those looking for a professional career in the fields of physiological optics, optical-instruments technology, optometry, ophthalmology and all related sectors.
On our website, you will find basic information about the programme’s structure and operations.
For more details, however, we urge you to contact or meet the programme's faculty and students. We would be glad to talk with you about the wonderful world of Optics and Vision!
Also, if you want to get a very comprehensive idea of the Program's content, we encourage you to attend one of our Summerschools in Visual Optics. This year's Summerschool will take place in Heraklion, Crete from July 7 to July 9. You are very welcome to join us!
