Welcome to CREOL, The College of Optics and Photonics.
We believe light is the gateway to technological advances and CREOL holds the key. CREOL enjoys the benefits and resources of being part of a large, metropolitan research university while maintaining the personal attention and opportunities of a small college. Your professors will know you by name and you will gain experience in one of the most robust research hubs on campus and within Florida.
I invite you to visit us to see for yourself why UCF has been named one of the top 25 universities worldwide for optics education and research. We look forward to unleashing your potential and unlocking your future at CREOL.
