Get to Know Nebraska Community Colleges (Part II- The Programs)Yesterday, we posted an introduction to the six main community college systems here in Nebraska, giving you information to get you started.

One thing we’d like to note is that although all of the colleges listed here have outstanding manufacturing education programs, they’re not just about skilled trades–they also have courses in other subjects, from business, to IT, to architecture and engineering! And, this list isn’t even everything that’s offered.

That means that you’re not just limited to manufacturing. While you pick up the skills needed for your future career in manufacturing, you can also learn about business and technology–or really, whatever else you want to learn!

The community colleges here in Nebraska are outstanding, and they’re a great way to kickstart a career. There’s a reason that Nebraska is one of the best places for young people, and great educational institutions like these certainly play a part.

If you’d like more information about the programs offered at the community colleges in Nebraska, you should consult the colleges’ individual sites listed here. Or, as always, if you have any questions for us, just let us know in the comments or on Twitter. We’re always here to help!
