SPIE IITG STUDENT CHAPTER
The SPIE IIT Guwahati student chapter came into existence officially on 30th of October, 2015 at the premises of Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati due to a proposal brought forward by some like-minded research scholars of the Department of Physics. The primary aim of the chapter is to popularise the field of optics among undergraduate students of the north-east. The students of most of the colleges and universities of north-east India are quite unaware of the various scopes and developments in the field of optics, as they rarely get the opportunity to explore the field and moreover they do not have a hard-core course on optics as they have for the other fields.
The main objective of the chapter is to inspire the students towards the field of optics through some events or awareness drive at various schools, colleges, institutes and universities of the north-eastern part of India, so that they may choose optics or related areas as their career. We aim in highlighting the various scopes, researches, developments, inventions, etc. in the field of optics and its related areas.
