Student profiles

"I was in the Marine Corps for five years, so I already had a technical background. TSTC’s Avionics Program was more in-depth than what I learned with the Marines, so I was able to build upon what I knew. I think TSTC is a great alternative to a traditional school, simply because you get out into the workforce faster. I don’t know about you, but I definitely want to get out there and do what I love. I’ve worked on F-18s – to work on F-35s would be the icing on the cake.”

"School is not my forte. I learn by doing, not reading. Although I did consider other colleges, TSTC stood out because of its hands-on learning. Because of TSTC, I now have the dream of opening up my own diesel mechanics shop. With what I learned at TSTC and the experience I’m gaining at Ag-Pro, I know that it can become a reality.”

"TSTC is so highly respected because instructors put you in a hands-on environment. I went from not knowing how to do anything to being confident enough to be a project leader in class, and I had a couple of job offers before I graduated – all after just one year. TSTC helped me to figure out what I really wanted to do in life.”
