Abstract

The purpose of this project was to determine if further development of educational programs in the fiber optic communications field is needed. We reviewed the status of the photonics industry in Massachusetts and determined the skills needed to meet with the industry's current labor demand. We also reviewed the educational programs available in Massachusetts associated with photonics and specifically fiber optics. Based on the information gathered, an evaluation of the educational needs of Massachusetts is presented.
