Directed Energy Education Workshop 2009
6 November 2009
San Antonio, Texas|
Education is vital to the Directed Energy community. Fostering the professional growth of current
workers in the field and increasing the number of young, new members in the community are important
DEPS educational goals. This was the ninth Workshop in a series of
DE Education Workshops to advance these goals. The workshops consider current and future Directed
Energy education programs around the country. Support for the Workshop has been provided by the High Energy
Laser Joint Technology Office and by DEPS.
The scope of the workshop included:
- Programs from K-12 through graduate/post-graduate studies and technical vocational training
- Professional continuing education
- Student motivators (scholarships, fellowships, recognitions)
- Summer internship programs
- Curriculum development
The Workshop was held on Friday 6 November in San Antonio, Texas. It immediately followed
the technical program of the Twelfth Annual Directed Energy Symposium,
also held in San Antonio on 2-6 November 2009.
The Directed Energy Education Workshop was held in the Rio Grande Room of the Hyatt Regency, San Antonio.
