Why Choose CLC?

CLC is the only community college in Chicagoland to offer a certificate program in this leading-edge field.

The college is offering the program to fill a demonstrated need for photonics technicians in the Chicagoland area, according to Steve Dulmes, department chair. "There are several employers in the area that want approximately 100 people per year and the next closest school offering a photonics program is in Iowa."
