Optoelectronics education training programs in Scotland
Author(s): John H. Marsh

Paper Abstract

The optoelectronics industry is of increasing importance to the Scottish economy, with annual sales of 1 billion and it is planned to grow this to 8.8 billion by 2010. The industry already employs around 5,000 people and, in the last year, 800 new jobs were created, including a high percentage filled by graduates and PhDs. One of the major challenges is to provide staff training at all levels: technicians, graduates and postgraduates. A variety of organizations - industry, government, university and professional societies - are working together to meet this challenge.
