Bi-Annual IA Meetings


The spring 2020 IA meeting is canceled. Resumes WILL BE distributed and we will help facilitate virtual interviews with IA members as needed. Companies are encouraged to interview via teleconference or video services. Company intros—1-2 minutes long—will be recorded and distributed to students for all who wish to participate.

The IA Program’s Bi-Annual Meetings offer IA members, faculty, and students alike prime opportunities to connect. Over the course of two or three days each fall and each spring (with a company’s degree of participation depending upon their membership tier), great minds of the optics industry convene to:

  • Learn about faculty and student research
  • Present talks on industry expertise and initiatives
  • Discuss the latest optical technologies
  • Review student posters and current projects
  • Network with prospective employers/employees
  • Learn more about industry leaders
  • Interview students from optics and other related engineering departments
  • Attend our Company Connection Showcase | Job Fair
  • Re-connect with Institute of Optics alumni
  • Take personal lab tours (upon request)
