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
An excellent course that teaches you geometric optics and gets you started with ZEMAX. Some of the quizzes have typos/bugs in them, but this is a minor gripe.
Good course, explanations are clear and concise and I got a good learning. Tricky exercises! Perhaps more exercises with quantstudio would have been nice.

A few new insights even for a senior optical engineer. I will keep working through their lectures if each one offers at least a few nuggets of insight.

Wonderful course! I have learned a lot. This course not only covers the knowledge but also the actual approach to design a working optical system.

well-organized course. The obvious benefit of online course is that you don't need to struggle to read professors' often messy handwritings.

The course is well structured. it would have been much better if there was more zemax design model in the weekly quiz.

Good lectures and presentations in this course. A sound and systematic basis for the next courses to follow.

Clear conceptual explanation of optical design concepts. Very helpful forf understanding ZEMAX operation.

Instructor explains the basics of optics very well. Practical example exrecise are very good
By SHAN Z K•
the professors explain very clearly and go from thin to thick. It is easy to understand.
By SHUBHAM S•
Very helpful. Material is good. Professor explains the topics very nicely.
By Arda E•
A useful course to learn the first order approach to the optical design
By Ghulam M•
Amazing course, a bit tricky though! Instructor is really good.
Excellent course, thank you Amy and Robert.

As physics courses go, this one is good but not great. Which is to say, the prof does a good job explaining the concepts but has a tendency to dive into complex examples without giving basic examples first. As others have stated, this means you'll have to do a fair amount of searching the internet for other resources to supplement the provided course material. It is possible to pass the quizzes and progress even without understanding 100% of the material.
There are some really useful nuggets of information about first-order optical design, which are explained well and often (after you've got past the basics of the first couple of weeks of material). This course gets to be quite rewarding from week 3 onwards. I do recommend it despite its downsides.
