Springfield Technical Community College offers associate degrees and certificates in over 90 programs. STCC graduates often choose to transfer to four-year colleges or universities to pursue additional education. STCC is home to the only degree-granting Optics and Photonics Technology program in New England. Established in 1976, in recent years the community college has collaborated with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the American Institute for Manufacturing Integrated Photonics of Rochester, to bolster its photonics program, providing modern lab facilities. Citing a high demand for such jobs in the region, the college has also been working towards the expansion of this technician-training program, including a proposed "Photonics Education and Practice Factory" emulating a similar facility completed at MIT in 2017.
