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.
