Students building a home in Goodland

First and second year students in Carpentry, Electrical Technology, and Communications Technology are again having the opportunity to work on a real construction site as they work on the project of building a home in Goodland. This is the fifth project of this nature that Northwest Tech students have been able to assist with in as many years. These include a home in Edson, a duplex at Wheat Ridge Retirement Community, and two other homes in Goodland.

Opportunities such as these provide Northwest Tech students the chance to get real hands-on experience. Carpentry instructor and Goodland native, Wade Taylor commented on the project saying, “This is the type of project that makes Northwest Tech stand out from the rest of the technical college options out there. We give our students the chance to practice what most students only learn about in a classroom. They are able to follow a project from the ground up, and that really gives them a head start on the competition after they graduate are join the work force.”

Graduates from Northwest Tech are equipped with an education that is shaped by the industry professionals on our program advisory boards, as well as by our experienced instructors. To ensure that stagnant learning does not take place on our campus, the curriculum of each of our programs is updated each year to make room for new technology and industry changes.
