CREOL, The College of Optics and Photonics is host for the Course Materials and Faculty Teaching Materials that were created by OP-TEC: The National Center for Optics and Photonics Education.

The National Center for Optics and Photonics Education, OP-TEC, was a consortium of two-year colleges, high schools, universities, national laboratories, industry partners, and professional societies funded by the National Science Foundation’s Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program. The participating entities of OP-TEC  joined forces to create secondary-to-postsecondary as well as returning adult “pipelines” of highly qualified and strongly motivated students and to empower two-year colleges to prepare technicians in optics and photonics.
