A Degree From This South Dakota Technical College All But Guarantees You A Job
An associate’s degree from a small technical college in South Dakota is proving to be more valuable than a degree from some four-year schools.
On campus at Lake Area Technical Institute, students are operating excavators. Others are working on the engine of a 727 airplane. Future nurses are learning how to draw blood from a patient.
And almost all of them will leave school with a job.
Lake Area Tech has one of the highest job placement rates among community colleges across the nation. About 99% of graduates have jobs or are continuing their education within six months of finishing their program.
