(WACO, Texas) – Texas State Technical College has added four statewide programs to its Money-Back Guarantee, reflecting the needs of employers.
Students in their first semester pursuing associate degrees or certificates of completion in the Industrial Systems, Precision Machining Technology, Process Operations Technology and Robotics Technology programs can now feel confident about finding employment soon after graduation.
Nicholas Cram, lead instructor in TSTC’s Process Operations Technology program, said he is excited about where the technical program is going.
“We anticipate offering specialties in natural gas and wastewater treatment with the associate degree at some point in the near future,” he said. “The Money-Back Guarantee showcases Process Operations Technology, along with other programs in high-growth, high-demand technical careers. We have very strong relationships with our industry partners, and they understand what our graduates bring to the job.”
TSTC’s Money-Back Guarantee began in November 2016 and is also for students pursuing associate degrees and certificates of completion in Diesel Equipment Technology, Electrical Lineworker Technology, Electrical Power and Controls, Instrumentation Technology and Welding Technology. The technical programs were chosen because they are in high demand in Texas.
Students in their first semester are eligible to sign up for free with campus Career Services representatives. Students are able to take part in workshops learning about resume writing, interview techniques and other employment skills.
Students who are not hired in their field within six months after graduation may be eligible to get a tuition refund for their time at TSTC.
So far, 270 students have signed up for the program with no money given back, said Kacey Darnell, TSTC’s vice president of Career Services.
