Program Description

The Individualized Technical Studies Program offers students the opportunity to obtain skills and knowledge offered at Northcentral Technical College, meet the needs of their career goals and meet the needs of business and industry. With the growth of employment opportunities in small to mid-sized firms, employees are taking on multiple tasks and roles that cut across traditional occupational categories. As jobs change and new occupations emerge, workers need skills and knowledge drawn from a variety of disciplines to be productive and successful in today’s workplace. This specialized program of study combines the skills taught in two or more existing NTC programs, and is designed in cooperation with an occupational mentor from the target industry. Students achieve their career goals by acquiring skills and knowledge in an associate degree program tailored to their specific employment needs.
