Welcome to the Industry and Technology Division

The Industry and Technology Division offers academic programs that provide marketable skills and occupational education to prepare the student for a successful career or transfer to a four-year college or university. Courses are taught by professionals in their field and students receive an intensive, hands-on educational experience. Instructors also work with students to seek employment, often before the course ends. Students learn how to compete in today's workplace, while learning valuable skills vital to career advancement. A strong work ethic is reinforced, along with dedicated workmanship.

The Industry and Technology Division offers programs for all kinds of students, from high school graduates looking to start a career, to those who want to work toward transferring to a four-year college or university. Through the adult re-entry program, many students enroll in courses to improve skills or retrain for a different position. Other students are looking for courses for their own personal enrichment and education. 

Today, options for employment are limitless - as our world becomes more dependent on technology, the demand for skilled technical employees increases.
