In response to increasing demands, Southern Tech recently built a state-of-the-art Engineering Technology Building to house programs which directly address the employment needs of manufacturing-related companies.  The 3D-CNC Machining program provides training designed to bring a student to an advanced level of understanding in the field of manufacturing processes currently used in both automated and non-automated industries. The goal is to become proficient in operation, machine set-up, programming of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines and their related CAD/CAM software applications.   

The Mechatronics program prepares students to become Automated Systems Technicians. The curriculum covers installation and operation of robotics and related automation using fundamentals of electricity, electronics, programmable logic controllers, hydraulics, and pneumatics.  

The Computer Aided Drafting program, also located in the Engineering Technology building, has been producing graduates since 1968 and the need for skills in Computer Aided Design (CAD) is still on the rise today. 

Southern Tech offers a wide variety of additional courses designed for both high school and adult students seeking to develop a career or technical skills. New and exciting programs have been introduced in Pre-Engineering and Heavy Equipment Operation.  Oklahoma University offers Dental Hygiene at the Southern Tech campus, and adult students may also enroll in the nationally certified Practical Nursing program.
