Skilled Trades & Construction Technologies
These programs offer many local and regional career opportunities. Expertise in crafts such as welding or electrical wiring is always in demand, and Wake Tech offers five programs of study for students who want a project-based, hands-on experience. Most instruction takes place in labs, where students work on industry-standard equipment; however, programs also include instruction in subject such as mathematics, blueprint reading, and code compliance.
Wake Tech academic programs (credit and non-credit) that are designed to lead to professional licenses are tied to North Carolina or national certifications. If you intend to pursue professional licenses outside North Carolina once you have completed your academic program at Wake Tech, please refer to the Professional Licensure section of the college's distance education authorization page for additional information.
