Paper Abstract

In this paper the new approach in teaching of laser courses which was developed and used at St. Petersburg Institute for Fine Mechanics and Optics is described. In this approach practical work on investigation of laser beams, theory of lasers, nonlinear optics and applied spectroscopy combine with execution of lab works on IBM PC-AT-286 compatible computers. Introduction of the developed technique into curricula of optical educational institutions will provide to intensify the educational process with increasing of the part of original work of students and also to realize as individual principle of education so as to train groups of students (3-4 persons) as prototype of future teams of scientists. In the paper the perspectives of international co-operation in the field of teaching of general and special optical courses based on expirience of leading optical educational institutions are also considered.
