This monograph provides the background and first steps necessary to initiate new photonics programs and revitalize existing programs. It identifies three levels of technicians needed in the workplace, presents a framework for infusing photonics instruction into two-year programs, provides reasons why the framework can positively affect recruitment and lead to higher program completion rates, and outlines initial steps for implementing the framework. OP-TEC: The National Center for Optics and Photonics Education has published two monographs designed to show how two-year postsecondary technical programs can be developed or reconfigured to produce technicians who are qualified to meet workforce needs in photonics and technologies that are “enabled” by photonics. The second monograph is titled “A General Curriculum Framework for Infusing “Enabling” Technologies into Two-Year Postsecondary Technical Programs”.
