After the storm: the photonics education and training landscape in Ontario
Author(s): Marc Nantel

Paper Abstract

It has been 5 years since the first of an organized effort to bring more undergraduate photonics education and training to Ontario schools has started. Before 2000, there were no photonics certificates, diplomas, or degrees other M.Sc. and Ph.D. available in the province. Now one can study to obtain optical fibre certificates and photonics technician/technologists diplomas at colleges, undergraduate degrees in photonics at colleges and universities, and continuing education certificates and diplomas in photonics. This talk gives an overview of the sea of changes in the field of photonics education and training that has shaped Ontario over the past half-decade.
