Author(s): Roger A. Lessard

Paper Abstract

Sometime ago, the Government of Quebec decided that a zone comprising Quebec City will become an Optics City. In Fact, this decision is based on long tradition of Optics that Laval University with the Defence Research Establishment of Valcartier (The Optics arm of the Canadian Defence Research Network) maintained for years despite the fact that Optics was not well seen as Research Domain. The Optics City zone in which we can find the 'Groupe d'optique photonique Quebec' (GOPQ - The Quebec City Optics Cluster) has decided that their first priority is to fulfill the needs of Optics/Photonics Specialists. As we know, this need is seen all over the world and every places where Optics/Photonics want to be done, wants to find or train this type of Specialists. The Faculty of Science and Engineering was appointed as the main player to organize such training in collaboration with a Network of College where Technicians are trained.
