“When I decided to return to school as a mature student it wasn’t simply to get a job, but to get a better job. The GTEC program has given me the education needed to find a solid, stable career. Even before completing the two-year program I have received a job offer from a very reputable company.”
Thom Hamilton


“I like being able to work hands-on to produce real print projects using the same high-tech equipment that is being used in the industry.”

“The program is challenging, but having a small class size helps because it promotes cooperative learning among students”
