It’s like a big family in the Engineering Technology program. Everyone is so friendly, and Mrs. Fleming is always there for you. Here I am developing so many life skills that will help me in the future. After I pursue an engineering degree, I’d like to work as a CAD designer on a CNC machine. If it weren’t for TCTC, I wouldn’t even be thinking about career opportunities.
