The department was established to involve and prepare well-practiced and trained engineers in the field of specialization to have the capability of spreading this new science and its related technologies in Iraq, and to enhance the plan of ministry of the Higher Education and Scientific Researches that would try to raise the level of education at the Iraqi universities. At the first year of the four-year study, the program of optoelectronics engineering consists of a common core courses designed to give students a solid foundation and the basic skills needed to develop their needs for the following years. After that, student will be engaged into two years of intensive specialized courses where students engaged in a mode of studying covering different aspects of optoelectronics engineering including laser technologies; optoelectronic devices; semiconductors; photonics devices; sensing and imaging; optical fiber technologies and communications etc. These technologies have applications in industry and manufacturing communication, biology, medicine, energy, lighting and commercially aspects of TV manufacturing and other applications for security in civil and defense purposes.
