OCtech 1


I worked at Hughes Aircraft as a shipping inspector and was laid off in 1993. Hughes Aircraft offered their employees one year of tuition assistance plus book fees in order for them to acquire a new skill. I decided to enroll in OCtech and complete the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) program. I graduated from the LPN program in 1994 and then enrolled in the Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program. I graduated from the ADN program and forged ahead by enrolling in the University of Phoenix to earn my Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing (BSN) and Master’s of Science in Nursing. I began my teaching career at OCtech as an adjunct instructor and then became the Practical Nursing Program Coordinator. In 2012, I led the PN Flex Option that allows adults to obtain a Diploma in Nursing by taking evening classes and having clinical on the weekend. OCtech is a wonderful place to develop a career path from LPN to BSN through the University Transfer program. Beginning as an LPN gave me the foundation that I needed to excel in the health care field. If you want a personal experience and guidance, OCtech is the College to choose.

Where Are Our Graduates Now?

After following the OCtech path to success...

After working at a manufacturing plant for 15 years, I had no idea that I would ever need to work elsewhere. Unfortunately, the plant closed and I needed another job. I then decided I needed a job that was more secure and would take me to retirement. I chose OCtech because I felt two years was as much as my husband and I could sacrifice financially. That decision was one of the best I have ever made. I have never regretted attending the Nursing Program at OCtech. The faculty instilled strong values and made me feel that I could accomplish anything. I had previously been out of school for 17 years and desperately needed that kind of encouragement. I always speak of the OCtech nursing program with pride and gratitude. I can truly say that being an alumnus of OCtech has been an asset to my advancing career.

ant Director at +rmc Penny RyNurse

I chose OCtech because of its location and affordability. I wanted to live at home until I graduated without having to take out excessive student loans. I graduated with the highest GPA in my program! I am now enrolled in Columbia College's Associate's to Bachelor's program through OCtech’s University Transfer Program. It has been a life changer for me and my family. As a full-time paralegal, wife, and mom, the schedule could not be more convenient. The classes have been energetic and hands-on, which keeps me attentive and interested. My hope is that my Bachelor of Arts in Leadership and Professional Communication will not only help me further my current career as a paralegal, but will also assist me in communicating ideas more efficiently in my everyday life experiences. I plan to graduate from Columbia College in 2015.

I graduated from the Machine Tool Technology program at OCtech in 2010. I chose OCtech because of its location and size. I knew I would receive the one on one attention I would need. The instructors really work with the students. Last summer, I came back to OCtech to gain even more skills on the latest technology. Learning new skills will help me get ahead and have more opportunities to advance. The instructors are flexible and help me juggle class time and my work schedule to make sure I succeed. OCtech works for the working adult.

Tool & Die Maker Akebono, West Columbia

My experience at OCtech helped catapult my career in education. People always questioned why I chose to attend a two-year versus a four-year college since I graduated from Orangeburg-Wilkinson High School in the top 10% of my class with a 4.23 GPA. My response was always that it was the most economical decision. There were also scholarship opportunities and ample tutoring services. I did not settle for OCtech; I made it a part of my plan of success. After OCtech, I transferred to Claflin University as an Elementary Education major with a minor in English. I came to OCtech with a goal in mind: to become an effective educator and role model for our youth. In May of 2014, I completed part of my goal by graduating from Claflin University with a 3.9 GPA. The next stop on my success train is to obtain my Master’s in Learning, Design and Technology at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana where I will begin studying in the fall.

In 2005, I walked through the doors of OCtech knowing that I wanted to become a teacher. I enrolled in early childhood and general education courses. After earning 80 hours in college credits, I transferred to Grand Canyon University where I completed a Bachelor’s Degree online in Elementary Education with a minor in Early Childhood Education. I continued on to complete a Master’s in Divergent Learning at Columbia College. I got my first teaching job at Swansea High School in Special Education and fell in love with Special Education and my students. Since that time, I’ve taken additional courses to become certified in Special Education. OCtech provided the foundation I needed for my career in teaching. My instructors were so supportive and I learned so much from them. OCtech was the perfect place to begin my educational journey!

Pathways that

and at a Four-Year University

OCtech is dedicated to helping our students achieve their goals. That’s why we have created specialized transfer pathways to four-year universities for you. Courses offered from the list of 86 transferrable courses will transfer to any South Carolina public college or university and to most private colleges. Starting a degree program at OCtech allows the student to save money, have more one on one attention, and gain a smoother transition into a four-year college.

If you already have an Associate’s Degree and are ready to start work on a four-year degree, talk to our Transfer Advisor about taking your general education courses here. You’ll save money and enjoy the convenience of taking classes close to home. Many of the general education classes can also be taken online.

The Path to College Begins Early...

I am enjoying the Associate's to Bachelor's Degree program offered by Columbia College. The courses in the program provide me the skills and tools that I need to become a successful leader. The classes are taught by instructors that know firsthand of the pressures and challenges faced by working adults who are continuing their education. I live in Orangeburg, so I appreciate the convenience of being able to take my Columbia College courses here on OCtech’s campus – that saves me time and money. This is an excellent option for those with an Associate's Degree wanting to obtain a Bachelor's Degree.

” ”

The OCtech Middle College Program is for rising high school juniors and seniors. Before a student graduates high school, he or she has the possibility of earning up to 24 college credit hours. For more information, call Deborah Cooper-Davis at 803.535.1409. Because my children were able to take dual credit classes while seniors in high school, they each started their freshman year of college with at least 12 credits. Each summer after high school they took at least one class. All of their credits transferred, and the cost of classes at OCtech was a lot more affordable! - Leslie Fender, parent of a graduate of The Citadel and a son and a daughter who attend The College of Charleston. OCtech offers a culture of excellence and success that engages and challenges students through a comprehensive curriculum. - Lisa Jenkins, parent of a daughter who started Clemson with 19 transferred credits and a son who graduated high school with 21 credits.

OCtech also participates in the nationally recognized pre-engineering Project Lead the Way® (PLTW®) curriculum to include models for increased dual credit and articulation opportunities. PLTW® is all about teaching and learning. For students interested in engineering or engineering technology, biomechanics, manufacturing, and other applied math and science areas, PLTW® is an exciting portal into these industries. Students can start earning college credits as early as their freshman year in high school.

MachineTool

Machine Tool Technicians produce precision parts using machine tools such as lathes, drill presses, and milling machines. They are able to set up and operate a wide variety of machine tools and have a thorough understanding of the working properties of metals, such as steel, cast iron, aluminum, and brass. Using their skill with machine tools and their knowledge of metals, Machine Tool Technicians plan and carry out the operations needed to make machined products that meet precise specifications. For those entering this field, a basic knowledge of computers is an advantage. We use the latest technology at OCtech! Students are able to learn on cutting-edge technology such as a Water Jet that is capable of cutting through 10 inches of metal with only water. Other technology includes lasers, a variety of computer numerical control instruments, and Mastercam. Mastercam’s comprehensive set of predefined tool paths enable machinists to cut parts efficiently and accurately.

echnology

Now is the time to become a Machine Tool Technician. With starting salaries that range from $16-$25 per hour and a 100% job placement rate, our Machine Tool Technology (MTT) Program is in highdemand. In fact, many of our students have jobs before they even graduate.

The quality of graduates we have hired from the MTT program at OCtech has been superb. They are prepared mentally and most have acquired their own tools, so they are ready to start the job. They fit well here at Koyo because they are from this area and know people within the company as well as some of their former classmates.

OCtech produces quality graduates the work force wants. And that is one of the main reasons I attended OCtech myself all those years ago.

Travis Little

Jig & Tool Supervisor at Koyo

I worked as a graphic artist for a few years after high school graduation. Then I decided it was time. I was ready for college! I came to OCtech not really knowing what I wanted to do, but the Student Services Department helped me figure it out by watching videos of what different programs do on a day to day basis. As soon as I saw the 100% job

placement rate and the fact that there are no geographical limits to where I can get a job, I knew Machine Tool Technology was for me. It is a tough

program, but the instructors here at OCtech understand that everyone learns differently. There is so much one on one attention. This has been an awesome experience. I love it!

Joy Bellamy MTT Student

The classroom instruction 100% prepared me for my career. The one on one classroom instruction and personal attention really made me like the atmosphere at OCtech.

I came to OCtech because I was tired of having just a job I wanted a career I could count on with a steady income. And, that’s exactly what I got. The cost savings and convenient location were great benefits too.

Triumph Tool Husqvarna Phoenix Specialty Carson’s Gun Repair


In our Computer, Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing Division, we have opportunities for apprenticeships and co-ops at these companies: l BP Amoco l Continental Tire l International Paper l SCE&G l Showa-Denko

Earn While You Learn

Apprenticeships and Co-ops give select students the opportunity to work for a real employer, earn a real salary and gain real workplace skills and experience. During an apprenticeship, the company pays for tuition and books while also paying the participant a salary. Participants must be able to juggle a busy class schedule with working a certain number of hours per week. With a co-op position, a student works for a company for an entire semester. They will be paid by the company, and will not report to campus the entire semester, but will still earn college credit. Generally, the company will not pay for tuition or books, but they do pay a generous salary during the co-op semester. When a student participates in an apprenticeship or co-op, it is an incredible opportunity not only for the student, but for the employer as well. It allows the student to gain valuable real world experience and begin building an impressive resume; it allows the employer to preview the skills and work ethics of a prospective future employee. Everybody wins!

Meet Michael

Michael had no idea what he wanted to do after graduation. He was homeschooled and worried that he would not be able to keep up at OCtech. He and his mom came to learn more about some programs and realized Electronic Instrumentation Technology (EIT) was a great fit. Michael started late in the semester, but with extra effort and help from his instructors, he was able to catch up to the rest of his class. Now, he is entering the apprenticeship program with Continental Tire. Very competitive, many students applied but only two were chosen.

With the EIT program, I am learning exactly what I will be doing on the job. I’m receiving one on one attention here at OCtech. And with the 100% job placement rate, I feel secure in my future. I will graduate and have a job before I am 19 years old. The instructors are great and the education I’m receiving is truly second to none. Thanks to this program, I now hold an apprenticeship position as a Multi-Craft Engineering Technician at Continental Tire. I know without a doubt that if it had not been for all of the help, work, and dedication from my instructors, none of this would be possible.
