This technician training program leads to a certificate in Advanced Manufacturing & Integrated Photonics. It is a partnership initiative designed to equip participants with the skills and experience needed to thrive in this burgeoning market.

 

Photonics, the study of light-based technology and other applications of optical science, is rapidly expanding. But the supply of qualified workers is inadequate to fulfill industry hiring needs, particularly personnel involved in assembly, quality control, testing, repair and technical work. 

This certificate program - offered by the Stonehill-Bridgewater Partnership for Integrated Photonics in collaboration with MIT’s Knowledge and Innovation for Manufacturing Initiative - is designed to equip program participants with the skills and experience needed to thrive in this burgeoning market.

This certification is a 15-month, 27-credit program to prepare students - with little or no background in the field ­- for careers as technicians in the integrated photonics industry.

 

Program Outcomes

  • Design components for semiconductor and optical devices
  • Describe theory behind design and fabrication of integrated circuits
  • Gain competency in problem solving, technical communication and safety in photonics and optics technician workplace
  • Gain knowledge of electronics (basic theory and applications including measuring and testing) in the photonics and optics technician workplace
  • Learn to define a photonics project or problem clearly
  • Learn to conduct applied work in a timely fashion
  • Learn to communicate the results of a project
