Development of a Curriculum in Laser Technology. Final Report.
Wasserman, William J.
A Seattle Central Community College project visited existing programs, surveyed need, and developed a curriculum for a future program in Laser-Electro-Optics (LEO) Technology. To establish contacts and view successful programs, project staff made visits to LEO technology programs at San Jose City College and Texas State Technical Institute, Center for Occupational Research and Development facilities (Waco, Texas), the Junior-Senior Graduate program in Electro-Optics at the University of Houston (Clear Lake City), and leading United States employers of laser technicians. A survey indicated that current prospects for LEO technician employment in Washington did not justify present establishment of an advisory committee or functioning program. A curriculum was developed as the basis of a future LEO technology program if continuing study indicates feasibility. The six-quarter program included special time and location requirements and utilized existing courses. (Proposed course content is briefly described.) (Appendixes, amounting to over one-half of the report, include a list of current two-year LEO technology programs, the San Jose City College Laser Technology curriculum, Texas State Technical Institute--Waco LEO Technology curriculum, University of Houston-Clear Lake City curriculum, and the survey form.)
