College of Technology and Occupational Sciences


Welcome to the College of Technology and Occupational Sciences.  Our mission and goal at the college is to provide graduating students with the knowledge and skills necessary to be able to immediately contribute to and positively impact regional employers. The programs in this college will lead you to rewarding careers in industries such as construction management, industrial maintenance, heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration, hospitality and tourism management and welding to name just a few.  You will leave with the knowledge and experience to hold entry-level management and technical-level positions in a field that you choose, at your pace – or as we like to say “your education-your way”.  So please, take your time and check out the many programs available within the college and at the university.  The links to your left will help connect you to the Technology and Occupational Sciences Department and the individual academic programs included in the college.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.  I hope to see you next semester.
