Laser Technology Evening Studies
 

Welcome to the Laser Technology Program at San Jose City College where you will be able to learn the skills that employers are looking
for in the Laser Technology field.

Our program is vital and relevant because it is continuously
updated based on industry standards and in cooperation with our Advisory and Curriculum Committee chaired by Dr. Norman Hodgson of Coherent Inc.


Emphasis is placed on both theory and hands-on skills so you learn the vital link between engineers' "blueprints" and their real-world implementations. You will learn how to install, operate, maintain, and modify laser/electro-optic systems throughout the Laser Program.
