  Northern Oklahoma College has a number of different programs that can help students achieve their goals in working in a variety of Oklahoma Industries.

  Courses taken at NOC can help individuals learn about a variety of career paths and gain skills needed by local employers. NOC works with a variety of local industries and transfer institutions, so that students can complete courses at NOC that can be used toward completing a degree in Process Technology or used towards Bachelor Degrees in Industrial Safety, and Engineering Technology fields like mechanical and electrical.

  During the fall semester, NOC introduced its Introduction to Wind course and will be enrolling students in the Introduction to Wind course and an Electromechanical Principles of Wind Turbines course for students looking to learn more about careers in Wind Energy. Again, helping to prepare students to meet the needs of our local employers and prepare them for success in their chosen careers.

  Due to demand for the NOC Tonkawa Process Technology (PTEC) Program, interested individuals will need to apply to the program.
