Abstract
Photonics is a critical enabling technology for the 21st century and photonics technicians are an integral part of the supporting workforce. This paper outlines a two-year AAS education program designed to product competent photonics technicians who can (1) enter the workforce directly upon graduation from the two-year program or (2) continue their education toward an appropriate four-year bachelor's degree program. As an appropriate foundation for the two-year AAS photonics program, consideration is given also to an optimal technology preparatory program for high school students who are moving towards careers in photonics.
