Business & Technology
The Laser Technology program at San Jose City College (SJCC) has been able to maintain its vitality and relevance by ensuring that students learn what employers need. The program was designed, and is continuously being updated, in conjunction with the its industry drawn and driven Advisory and Curriculum Committee chaired by Dr. Norman Hodgson of Coherent Inc.
Emphasis is placed on both theory and hands-on skills for technicians are the vital link between engineers' "blueprints" and their real-world implementations. Trainees learn how to install, operate, maintain, and modify laser/electro-optic systems.
The SJCC Laser Technology students and graduates are highly sought after in labs and manufacturing firms in a variety of industries. Our first semester open-entry course, Laser 100, is specifically designed to prepare participants for entry-level technician jobs with starting salaries in excess of $40,000 per annum. We strongly encourage our students to graduate from their Laser Technology certificate and/or A.S. study programs for even better income and employability potential.
Companies on the cutting-edge of laser electro-optics technology such as Spectra-Physics, Coherent, JDS Uniphase, New Focus, Lightwave Electronics, and Lawrence Livermore National Labs have employed and continue to seek our students and graduates for employment
