The College offers a variety of curriculum and continuing education course offerings. You will find everything from Agribusiness Technology to the Fine Ar...ts. There are few community colleges that offer such a strong variety of options for students. At one moment you may be standing on the stage in Shearer Hall where you can be trained in world class musical performance accompanied by one of our Steinway and Sons Grand Piano and a pipe organ; the next moment you may be across campus standing in our Advanced Integrated Machining lab gaining valuable knowledge in advanced manufacturing skills. Then again you could be in Mooresville taking courses in our Computer Technology Integration program or on Front Street working on our Urban Farm.
Our Continuing Education division offers basic skills training for those who may need to refresh and refine their educational skills. Our occupational extension programs offer courses tailored to individual needs and our ability to respond to workforce and industry needs through training is world class.
