The Laser & Optics Technology Program would like to thank Gentec-EO, an expert in the laser beam measurement field, for their generous contribution to our program. Following the college's participation at the Gentec-EO Laser Lab Awards in 2023, Indian Hills Community College was selected as 1 of 12 colleges and universities in the world to receive a prize of a new pyroelectric detector for laser energy measurement with INTEGRA module (QE25LP-H-MB-INT-D0). This new equipment will offer our students the rare opportunity to gain hands-on experience with another piece of high quality technology - knowledge that they can then apply to their careers after graduation. Thank you Gentec!
"I was able to complete one year of college at Indian Hills while still attending high school. After graduating, I only had to complete one additional year of credits at Indian Hills. Taking concurrent enrollment credit saved me so much money. Also, staying close to home and completing my degree provided me with the freedom of going to college, but also the structure I needed to learn how to transition to a larger institution.
