Why Study Lasers and Fiber Optics?
A study conducted by the University of North Texas in June 2012, identified an annual national need of 1,592 technicians in the LFO field while the present output of U.S. colleges is only 350. The same study indicates that in the southeast region we must increase the present output of LFO technicians by 300% to meet industry demands.
There is obviously an urgent need to ramp up the production of LFO technicians to satisfy the high demand, maintain our world leadership, and create more high-paying jobs here at home.
