Technical Education

Delaware County Community College is a regional leader in technical education. Whether you’re training for your first job or retraining for a better one, you’ll find the programs, faculty, facilities and technology to give you the skills you need for today’s – and tomorrow’s – technical careers.

Our offerings range from the traditional skilled trades – automotive, electronics, HVAC systems, plumbing and welding – to high-tech engineering technology, all of which support the region’s industries with today’s in-demand highly skilled employees.

The College is especially well known for its engineering technology programs, including computer-aided drafting and design, power utility technology, electronics, nanofabrication, industrial systems, machine tool technology and more. These programs produce highly regarded graduates who are in great demand in the regional workforce.

Given today’s focus on green technologies and renewable energy, the College is developing new courses such as PV Solar, Weatherization, Green Roof Construction and Geothermal Heating and Cooling Systems. We expect to add more green technology courses and to “green” our course offerings in the building trades and manufacturing, so our students will be prepared to fill these emerging career opportunities.

In the technical fields, the College offers programs leading to the associate in applied science degree (link 2.3.1) as well as professional certifications and certificates of competency and proficiency (link 2.4.1). These programs prepare you to meet the needs of local industries, or to continue your technical education to the next level.

For local businesses, we offer on-site career degree programs and on-site customized training to meet your workforce training needs.

Many of the College’s technical education programs are offered at the new Advanced Technology Center, which features advanced laboratories and state-of-the-art equipment in fields such as composite materials, industrial systems and machining.

“Our business and industry partners rely on the College to provide students who are well prepared in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math. We have provided students with STEM education and training to fill a wide variety of full- and part-time positions and internships with companies such as Sunoco, Boeing, CTDI, Synthes, Penn Machine Works, Inc., as well as numerous health and medical facilities in the region.”
