Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to give an overall view of the Laser, Electro-Optics Technology Department at Vincennes University. Objectives, educational approach, curriculum, laboratory emphasis, and industrial relations will be presented. When industry needs to select a technician in optics, electro-optics, or lasers, only a handful of qualified technicians will be available. This is due to the fact that these fields are fairly new and the number of schools offering these programs is limited. As the Program Coordinator of the Laser Electro-Optics Department at Vincennes University, I am confident that our school will provide highly capable technicians. The program at Vincennes University has full North Central Accreditation and offers a broad variety of courses in order to provide employers with technicians having the best possible electro-optical training. Sixty per cent of the total instruction time is spent in the laboratory, in which the emphasis is on individual participation in each of the labs. The students' educational backgrounds vary from high school credit by G.E.D. to bachelors degrees in various areas.
