About this program

Laser Technology

Lasers are now the enabling devices of choice for many industries that range from medicine, entertainment, telecommunications, and aesthetics, to quality control. Their ubiquity has resulted in the sky-rocketing demand for personnel who are well-versed in laser technology for both technical and non-technical positions. We therefore give our students both theoretical and hands-on competencies needed to tackle most common problems and issues encountered in the laser/laser system environments through regular course and industry internships.

Students must satisfactorily complete all major and certificate courses with a grade of "C" or better and at least four courses must be completed at San Jose City College.
