In 1985 GMI Engineering & Management Institute introduced an applied optics minor for undergraduate engineering students. GMI has learned that this is a popular option for students and provides a background in applied optics sought by many employers. One application area in which GMI is well equipped and has had considerable success teaching is holographic and speckle interferometry. This paper discusses class and laboratory techniques used to teach this material. Two laboratory projects are discussed in some detail to demonstrate the depth and scope of the material taught.
