State Tech is known for amazing career outcomes for our graduates, so when we begin to offer a new program, we know these students will be sought after when they graduate.

“The Energy Market is progressing through unprecedented changes from rising energy demands to technology changes and employee retirements. State Techs reputation in the market place with employers is a great fit for the agile Energy Market as it evolves. Having the opportunity to help young adults to prepare and define the future of our Energy Market is exciting. I look forward to watching the State Tech Energy Technology student’s careers grow and evolve as they define their career paths.”
