In the recent times, optical technology is progressing by leaps and bounds largely due to the contribution of computer science. However, such optical system configuration is often difficult even for students from computer science as well as students from other disciplines to understand. The sophisticated nature of optics poses to many students as a challenge as the majority of them may experience difficulty in setting up the optical systems and struggle to comprehend them to a greater depth. In this paper, a novel optical engineering kit developed and maintained by OPSS is proposed. We hope that students may benefit from the hands-on experience by experimenting with the Optics Kit and gain insights from the various interesting applications of optics.
