Faculty Member Helps IT Students ‘See the Light’

The Information Technology Living-Learning Community had the opportunity to learn about optical fiber terminations in a recent session hosted by Jeff B. Weaver, associate professor of electronics and computer engineering technology. Students donned safety glasses and, armed with strippers and cleavers, prepared a duplex multimode fiber optic cable for termination with an MT-RJ workstation jack, Weaver explained. A Visual Fault Locator, a tool that sends light down the fiber, was used to test the termination. The program provided students with an introduction to fiber optic transmission and the techniques used to install connectors on such lines. The Residence Life Office offers a number of living-learning communities on campus, bringing outside-the-classroom opportunities to students enrolled in the same academic majors.
