Abstract
Today there is a recognized, integrated body of knowledge that constitutes optical science and engineering. It is an enabling area of science, technology and engineering that has a very significant impact on today's world. The scope of optical science and engineering will be explored to review how it is organized both from the educational point of view as well as the professional standpoint. The impact of national programs and international structures will be examined with some particular comment on the current initiatives in the United States through the Committee on Optical Sciences and Engineering formed under the auspices of the National Research Council whose report should be forthcoming next year.
