Applied Technology

Northeastern Technical College's Applied Technology programs prepare students for initial employment and advancement in a given occupation.

Emphasis is on development of skills, with much of the student’s time spent in lab or shop work. The remaining time is directed to related technical and general education, necessary for success in today’s business and industry. Any of these programs may be completed on a part-time basis, though it will require a longer period of time to do so. Certificate programs are also available for those interested in short-term course work. Certificate course work will apply toward diplomas or degrees upon completion of admission requirements.
