Students enrolled in Manufacturing, Welding and Engineering gain a competitive advantage as they learn industry-standard skills and knowledge through hands-on projects and experiences. Students design, build and construct projects to be sold to community customers, using state-of-the-art equipment.


We want our students to be ready for whatever comes after high school. CTEC’s Manufacturing, Welding and Engineering students have landed jobs and internships at Boeing, Accutex and Blackhawk. Our students are ready to start their careers with the following industry-relevant skills and knowledge:

  • An understanding of the manufacturing process
  • Safe operation of metal fabrication equipment
  • Proficiency in welding (MIG, Stick, TIG)
  • Entry-level skills in machining with lathes and mills
  • Precision measurement skills needed to be successful in any manufacturing-related project
  • Applied mathematics and CAD skills to enhance metal fabrication and production
  • Jobsite skills by doing piece work for local manufacturers and creating independent projects for local clients

Students in the Manufacturing, Welding and Engineering program learn industry-relevant knowledge and skills, while taking applied mathematics and English. Students gain high level Computer Aided Design (CAD) expertise. Students receive coaching and resources to explore career options they may want to pursue directly out of the program or with continued education. Coupled with the experiences they have throughout this program, they graduate with a plan and the ability to adjust the plan throughout their career.

With a foundation of professional skills, technical skills, contextualized math and English training and CAD, our students are ready to pursue their career goals.
