WSU Tech is the largest technical college and the fifth largest two-year institution in Kansas. In 2018, the Chronicle of Higher Education named WSU Tech the 2nd fastest growing college among two-year colleges. Each year, WSU Tech serves over 10,000 students in Wichita across 4 campuses and a handful of satellite educational centers. As the need for educated and skilled individuals in the workforce continues to grow, WSU Tech is committed to providing the necessary training to meet the demands of our local industries. At WSU Tech, applied learning is a part of every program we offer and every class that we teach. For some, it may occur in the classroom through hands-on learning, civic engagement, and simulations. For others, applied learning may happen out in the real world through internships, clinicals, and apprenticeships. Applied learning fosters critical thinking, reflective practices, and supports transfer of new knowledge in real-world situations, all while providing our students with a heightened learning experience. WSU Tech is much like a community college. We are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and are a Kansas Board of Regents institution. We offer a variety of general education courses that are guaranteed to seamlessly transfer to any other public college and university in Kansas. Students come from a variety of backgrounds, all ages and are at varied stages of life. Whatever their story may be, WSU Tech is the place where they can accomplish their educational goals. As we like to say… start here, go anywhere!
