Development of Articulated Competency-Based Curriculum in Laser/Electro-Optics Technology. Final Report.
Luzerne County Community Coll., Nanticoke, PA.
A project was conducted at the Community College of Luzerne County (Pennsylvania) to develop, in cooperation with area vocational-technical schools, the first year of a competency-based curriculum in laser/electro-optics technology. Existing programs were reviewed and private sector input was sought in developing the curriculum and identifying needed equipment and facilities. The curriculum developed by the task force is included in this document, presented in three sections. The first section covers general business/industry trends; the laser technician; the laser/electro-optics technology program; program competencies; course competencies; special laboratory equipment; articulation; and a proposed second-year course listing. The second section lists the educational specifications for laser/electro-optics technology, and the final section specifies equipment needed for the program. Appendixes to the report list the task force members, describe the literature search, and provide a task listing with manufacturers' ratings of their relative importance. Sample task force letters complete the report. (KC)
