Western Technical College is committed to excellence in learning, continuous improvement, student success, employer satisfaction, and community partnerships. Western is located in La Crosse, WI and has five regional locations in Black River Falls, Independence, Mauston, Tomah, and Viroqua.
Since 1912, Western Technical College has been providing educational opportunities for the people of western Wisconsin. Today, Western offers many programs that lead to an associate of applied science degree. These programs are in four divisions: Business, General Studies, Health and Public Safety, and Industrial Technologies. The essential experience is what you get at Western. You don't just sit at a desk and learn. You get out of your chair and actually do it. Interactive classes and internships get you the skills you need when you graduate. Classes are rarely boring. And they can get you into the work world fast; most programs can be completed in two years or less. Our highly-trained faculty at Western Technical College teach diverse topics and come from equally diverse backgrounds. But, they do have at least two things in common: First, they have actually worked in their areas of expertise and bring real-life experiences and knowledge to their classrooms. The skills you learn now will help you in your career later.
While we know learning is important, we also know it doesn't just happen in the classroom. Student clubs, athletics, intramural sports, service learning activities, and residence halls, give you the true college experience.
