Description:Photonics and Laser technology has impacted virtually all segments of society and industry, from the way we communicate, harness energy from the sun, manufacture things, measure things (including many important new medical instruments and laser-based therapies) and finally entertain ourselves with colourful displays in all sizes and shapes.

Carleton University and Algonquin College have entered into a unique partnership to offer a combined Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT) degree and advanced diploma. The Bachelor of Information Technology – Photonics and Laser Technology (BIT – PLT) program provides a multidisciplinary education and practical experience in such diverse but connected subjects such as, laser physics, optical system design, bio photonics, fiberoptic telecommunication, laser machining and holography. Our faculty works closely with industry through Applied research projects, and also with our cooperative student placements, so we are able to keep pace with the both your needs and the rapid pace of industrial change and therefore able to supply the needs of a diverse & dynamic industry.
