Development of an industry-based laser manufacturing degree program
Author(s): Judy Donnelly; Nicholas Massa; Karen Wosczyna Birch

Paper Abstract

In 2005, Connecticut’s Regional Center for Next Generation Manufacturing (RCNGM) surveyed companies representing a cross section of the laser manufacturing industry in New England. A technician competency profile was created as a result of a detailed job skills survey and intensive personal interviews with company personnel. Three Rivers Community College subsequently developed a Laser Manufacturing Option to the Manufacturing Engineering Technology A.S. degree based on the competency profile, with new and revised courses featuring an emphasis on interdisciplinary skills and knowledge across several disciplines.
