Gallatin College trains labor force for laser industry

September 2, 2017View for printing

Travis Roth said he was working "a dead-end job" when he saw something about Gallatin College's new two-year program training students for good-paying jobs building lasers.

"It seemed a great opportunity," said the student from Choteau.

Now starting their second year of classes in photonics and laser technology, Roth and six Gallatin College classmates are working toward their associate of arts degrees -- and already have jobs at Bozeman's laser manufacturers.
