Welcome to Waukesha County Technical College!

Two-thirds of the fastest-growing careers will require a technical education. And Waukesha County Technical College is focused on preparing learners for in-demand jobs within the regional and global economy.

The College’s four schools – Applied Technologies, Business, Health and Protective & Human Services – offer more than 90 technical diploma and associate degree programs, along with 75-plus short-term certificates. All deliver comprehensive training that arms students with skills that can immediately be applied to the workforce.

A WCTC education features applied learning, cutting-edge technology, individualized attention, instructors with real-world experience, employer connections and transfer options. More than 50 program-to-program transfer agreements exist with many colleges and universities, and these agreements enable WCTC associate degree graduates to transfer specific credits into baccalaureate programs, often at junior-level standing.

Multiple learning opportunities, beyond the traditional college experience, meet students’ diverse needs:

  • Blended Options, for those seeking accelerated, evening programming designed to fit with work and family schedules. This combines in-class instruction with online learning and features student cohort groups.
  • Dual Enrollment Academy, for high school students who want a jump start on their post-secondary education.
  • Career Pathways, for students interested in acquiring new skills and earning credentials in stages, ensuring they are job-ready after each step in the path.
  • Apprenticeships, for those seeking to learn a specific trade and earn while they learn.

Many of these opportunities include hybrid components, such as online learning, along with accelerated options for added flexibility.
