TOP REVIEWS FROM FIRST ORDER OPTICAL SYSTEM DESIGN
Really nice course with very clear explanations of the principles of optical engineering and learn how to use ZEMAX Opticstudio to simulate your optical system
Assignments are difficult and the auto-grader is a bit buggy. But the course content and the faculty is great
One inconvenience is the windows software. But I mainly aimed to study the mathematics and it is quite helpful with all the explorations needed with the problem sets.
Great content but the provided learning resources are limited to the video lectures and exercises. There is no staff helping in the discussion forums. Question hang there without answers for months.
