Provided by The National Center for Optics and Photonics Education (Op-Tec),this 64-page PDF Program Planning Guide was written by Fred Seeber and Raman Kolluri of Camden County College. It is a detailed guide to merging Telecommunication technology and Photonics education. There is a history on photonics in telecommunication, detailed curriculum, labs and equipment recommendations, faculty training materials, and recommendations as to how to implement and sustain this program in your institution. The final chapter, Chapter 7: Building the “Pipeline” for Future Photonics Technician Students…” is a very important aspect to this transition. It explains how to connect and recruit with high school students in order to spark their interest in a photonic technician program. This is an important resource for those community colleges looking to modernize and expand their current telecommunication curriculum.
