Student Training

Unparalleled academic environment

With its state-of-the-art research facilities and world-renowned expertise, the COPL provides an exceptional environment for students wishing to specialize in optics and photonics. As the largest university center in its field in Canada, the COPL turns out roughly 30 graduates per year (M.Sc. and Ph.D.).

Scientists that have trained at COPL are known for their ability to rapidly adapt to the workplace and waste no time in providing a significant contribution to more applied research projects. Having been exposed to industry through sponsored research collaborations while working toward their degree, they are familiar with the dynamics of technological development.

For over 30 years, the COPL and its ancestor the LROL (Laboratory for Research in Optics and Lasers) have provided highly qualified manpower to virtually every company in optics and photonics in the province of Quebec. The COPL pays close attention to the role it plays in the cycle of innovation and strives to train future scientists as well as future leaders in optics and photonics. Talks, workshops and seminars are held on a regular basis to stimulate entrepreneurship among students.

The COPL also supports student participation in conferences where they are presenting their research through posters or talks. Furthermore, COPL students are involved in organizing seminars and symposia held at the Center. They are also encouraged to network with peers and with established scientists at events sponsored by the OSA Student Section and by the Québec Photonic Network, among others.
