Industrial Technology Education Division

Society now recognizes the value of a technical education. Technicians are well-paid, highly respected members of the community, and they are meeting a demand for people who know how to get things done.

Eastern offers many advantages to those who want to learn the skills needed in our society. You come into a program where you work with instructors who have extensive industrial experience, as well as advanced technical degrees.

The classes are small so you get a lot of individual attention. The equipment and tools used in training are of identical quality as the tools found everyday in industry. In fact, our programs are supported by industrial advisory committees who confirm what our students will need to know when they graduate.

At Eastern, we also understand that it takes more than hand skills to build a career. The ability to communicate well is equally important in getting the job you really want, and moving ahead.

You can gain these vital hand and communication skills here. You can grow and enjoy your education at the same time with Eastern's comprehensive program of learning and activities.

This is how we prepare you for work that is interesting, challenging and financially rewarding.
