www.tstc.edu Researchers predict laser technology will play a dominant role during the 21st century and beyond, continuously changing the world through advances in laser applications and uses.

Just consider how far this amazing instrument has come since its creation more than 30 years ago. The word LASER, now common, is actually an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The modern-day laser is a tool so delicate it can repair a damaged eye without anesthesia ... an instrument so powerful it can pierce a diamond ... a device so accurate that it can measure, to within 1 centimeter, the astronomical distance from the Earth to the moon.

With a vision for the future, Texas State Technical College developed the nation's first Laser Electro-Optics Technology program in 1969. As a student in the two-year LET degree program, you can prepare for a challenging career as a laser optics technician, using some of industry's finest laboratory equipment valued at more than $40 million.

You come into contact with lasers more than you realize. For instance, your compact disc player, computerized video game and the scanner at your local grocery store all produce both high-quality and definite results because of lasers. As a graduate of the LET program, you can look forward to exciting, rewarding and high-paying career opportunities in science, medicine and other industries.

As a graduate of the LET program, your job responsibilities may include installing high-powered laser systems; repairing and replacing complex laser optic equipment; building advanced, modern-day laser systems; and calibrating and certifying existing laser systems. LET graduates also hold positions such as laser technicians, research and development technicians, field service representatives, electronics technicians, associate engineers, quality control technicians and alignment specialists.
