From CREOL’s website:

Since its formation in 1987 as CREOL – The Center for Research and Education in Optics and Lasers, the College of Optics and Photonics has been guided by its mandate to be a center of excellence in optics and lasers, in both research and education, and to act as an intellectual, scientific and technical resource to the optics and photonics industry…

…Towards this end, CREOL, The College of Optics & Photonics has formed strong bonds with industry, has become a major force in Florida’s laser and photonics community, and is a prime source of highly educated talent in the optics and photonics field. The College is recognized as a key component of the national as well as international fabric in optics and photonics.

Industrial corporations and businesses that are involved in the development or use of optics and photonics, or foresee the company’s involvement in future applications and processes using optics and photonics, are encouraged to become involved in our programs. This involvement will positively impact our progress and our expanding education and research programs, and will help formulate and crystallize our vision for developments and applications in optics and photonics in the future.
