Lasers: a common part of movies and TV growing up, now turned into an employment opportunity in the real world. Designed with industry guidance, Baker’s Photonics and Laser Technology associate degree program is crafted to meet the needs of these ever-growing industries.

The hands-on training you’ll receive in our state-of-the-art labs will teach you how to build, modify, install, test, and maintain laser and electro-optic devices of many different sizes and uses. This training will open the door to a career in fields as varied as manufacturing, defense, communications,  lighting, and many other industries that use these sensitive and complex devices.

Included as part of your course is an internship opportunity to give you even more hands-on training in fields and industries that employ photonics and laser equipment. After graduation, you’ll be fully prepared for a long and fulfilling career working with lasers and photonics - even if it’s not quite as exciting as a sci-fi movie, your future is still looking pretty bright.

Baker College gave me the tools that prepared me for a job like this, making sure that we were learning the correct stuff. Talking with LaserMech or other companies and finding out what they’re looking for and then applying that to the classroom.
