Author(s): P. Stroobach; Ivar Jacco Boerefijn

Paper Abstract

The object of this study was to find the connection of photonic training in the Netherlands between the participating schools and the trade and industry. The Dutch Society of Optics did an enquiry into the quality of photonic education at the MBO/HBO level during the period of November 1996 to July 1997. The research was about the connection of the schools which educate photonics and the trade and industry. The main target of the research is to have a better understanding of the quality of the connection. Both from a students and/or graduate point of view as well as from a trainee mentors one. This research was strongly supported by the schools in the Netherlands who teach this kind of education. The way of research was by poll, which is held under a population of students and graduated people which at least had been in contact with the trade and industry in the area of photonics and their mentors.
