Industry's Role In Optics Education
Author(s): James E. Pearson

Paper Abstract

Industry has a vital and necessary role to play in the education of skilled optical scientists, engineers, and technicians. This role is not independent from that played by universities and other educational institutions; rather, it is one element of a continuous process, which is optimized when the interdependent roles that industry, academia, and government play are understood and coordinated in a strong partnership formed among the three groups. Examples from United Technologies are used to illustrate the contribution that corporations can make to the educational process.
