We are Central Tech.


Practical Experience and Technical Skills

We attract students who desire real-world opportunities. If you thrive on hands-on learning and relevant curriculum you can use immediately, Central Tech is the school for you. Upon entering a classroom, you will feel the school pride as you visit with students and instructors. Healthy competition keeps students at the top of their game in class and in the application process. We have a student waiting list each year. With limited classroom size, it is best to enroll early.

Business Training

A Healthy Workforce Boosts The Economy

Education doesn’t end at graduation. Through partnerships with the corporate world, we provide workforce training and consulting services to companies. Let us help you remain competitive. At Central Tech, our Business & Industry Services team has a passion to serve your business needs through customized training solutions.


How much thrust does a model rocket engine produce? Pre-Engineering aerospace students ignite an engine connected to a force sensor to graph the thrust output as the rocket travels through its ascent, coast, and descent phase. (HINT: This engine can produce nearly 200 pounds of thrust!)

Why Central Tech

Central Tech Staff

Nothing Teaches Like Experience

Quality leaders emphasize goals, direction, results, and ongoing evaluation. This encourages instructors to lead by example as they begin each day with high expectations and push students to do their best.

Respect is the alliance that bonds students and faculty. Our instructors, having worked in their industry, demonstrate a passion for their trade. It’s reflected in the students as they take pride in their work and become a part of something greater than themselves. This culture doesn’t happen by accident.

We pride ourselves on a student-to-faculty ratio of 18:1.
