What’s a Technical College?

Learn a little about technical colleges in this blog.

Technical colleges – or institutes – are higher learning schools that train students for a specific skill, job, or industry. Technical colleges are great for students who know what they want to do and have a particular career track in mind.

Technical colleges typically provide an Associates-level degree or certification upon graduation. Once students graduate, they enter the workforce directly with the necessary skills and credentials they need.

These schools are generally less expensive than four-year universities. Technical colleges also provide hands-on experience, an introduction to the industry, and, most importantly, assisted job placement before graduation.

Some common industries that have technical colleges:

  • Cosmetology 
  • Culinary Arts
  • Auto work
  • Home work (HVAC, electrical, plumbing, welding, etc.)
  • Truck Driving
