It is a comprehensive two-year technical college that provides training of persons for jobs in new and expanding industries, upgrading programs for workers already employed and university transfer opportunities.

The goal of the College is to nurture and cultivate the unique qualities of each student through an interesting curriculum, in an inspiring environment and under the leadership of involved instructors. Class size is small, ensuring that each student receives the individualized attention essential for the realization of his/her potential and with the number one priority being the student's success in school and beyond.

To that end, all courses required for degree, diploma and certificate graduates relate directly to their majors and to competencies needed for professional advancement after graduation. The opportunity for this type of concentration is one of the primary advantages of attending OCtech.
