All you need to know about SPIE Society of NCU

The mission of the professional societies is primarily educational and informational. Their influence flows from their continuing and highly visible functions: to publish professional journals, to develop professional excellence, to raise public awareness, and to make awards. Through their work, they help to define and set standards for their professional fields and to promote high standards of quality through awards and other forms of recognition.

 Among the many interdisciplinary societies is the SPIE Society(Society for Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers  founded in July,1955 in order to wake the interests of people interested in Photonics, Nanotechnology, Optics and other Photo-Optics related  areas. 

Associated since 2014 with NCU, Department of EECE, the SPIE Student Chapter is growing every year. Interesting events, attractive competitions, frequent and knowledge-enhancing guest lectures, Industrial Visits, Exhibitions, National Workshops etc. are some of the key attractions of SPIE Student Chapter. One of the major benefits of SPIE membership is the support provided the society to the students for research publications. The SPIE Photonics West: the world’s largest biomedical, optical and laser exhibition and conference is a great platform which yearly absorbs more than 20,000 visitors.

SPIE provides fully funded trip to the Photonics West conference yearly (generally held in different countries of the world) to the students who work remarkably well for this not-for-profit cause.
Talking of the guest lectures and workshops organised here at Department of EECE at NCU by the SPIE Student Chapter are inter- disciplinary and are solely focussed towards enhancing the co-curricular interests of the students. The latest workshop organised by the Student Chapter was targeted towards the highly heated technology these days like Artificial Intelligence, Mobile App Development along with areas of photonics.

In a nutshell, SPIE is the destination where you may approach in order if you are interested in remarking your research or interest in Photo-Optical Technologies.
