Everything we do is really hands on. We are constantly doing experiments, building things, really working with our hands, and I really like that.
It takes some serious focus, but it's not hard if you try. If you understand it, it's not hard. But you have to be willing to put forth the effort.
In the Technical & Industrial Division we have Auto Mechanics, Collision Repair, Diesel Technology. We also have the Industrial Electronics program, the HVAC program, Information Technology program, Engineering Technology program, CNC Machining, Welding, and then the Industrial Maintenance Millwright program.
I really enjoy the hometown feel. LCSC is a small school, but there is a wide range of things you can study. But it still feels like home here. You can live at home, and you can go to school. And you can work so you're not nearly as financially stretched. It's a lot of fun. I show up every day and I learn something new, and I have a good time.
A lot of other tech programs from across the state are maybe like a nine month long program. Almost all of our programs are two year programs. Meaning that this gives the student basically twice as much time to absorb. So the first year is just a lot of general stuff. And then in the second year, I'm doing more of integrating the base knowledge into what I would actually be doing as a technician.
Our faculty, first off, they need to be a master journeyman. Have had at least eight years of field experience. When they come in to our programs to teach, they've got to be able to demonstrate and show how to fix something because most of our students are that way. Learners that want to be able to fix things with their hands. All of the teachers I've had are super willing to help out. They're super flexible. The resources are there if you need it at LCSC. The instructors are there if you need help. All you have to do is ask. They'll take all the time that you need to help you understand. If it's after class or between classes or come early, come late, come in on Friday, they'll be there whenever you need.
Class sizes are very small, which is really good. You get a lot of the attention you need. I went to a traditional four-year college for a little while, and I feel like you get kind of lost in the shuffle of people where the class sizes are so huge. You just don't get the attention you need. Here in the technical program at LCSC you get all the attention you need. You really can develop that one-on-one relationship with the instructors. And you really get a feel for their teaching style, and they get a feel for your learning style. And it's really a benefit for both people.
We don't get enough young ladies coming into our programs. But the ones that do all excel. A lot of our ladies actually have a better ability to see things that guys sometimes overlook when it comes to troubleshooting. There's this sense of satisfaction when you've spent your day making something, and you flip that switch, and it works. It feels great.
