Welcome to Southern Union State Community College's Technical Education and Workforce Development Division.


The Division offers three programs leading to an Associate in Occupational Technologies Degree: Air Conditioning and Refrigeration, Automotive Service, and Cosmetology. We provide six programs that lead to an Associate in Applied Science degree: Aviation Maintenance, Engineering and Design, Electrical Technology, and Advanced Manufacturing with concentrations in Machining, Mechatronics, Plastics Engineering, and Welding. Our college also offers Certificates and Short-Term Certificates within all the previously mentioned technical programs.

Through our Workforce Development Office, we provide a variety of educational and training opportunities. We offer customized training for business and industry, short-term training through the ACCS Innovation Center Skills for Success Program, and a Tractor-Trailer Truck Driver Training course for those pursuing a career requiring a commercial driver’s license.

Southern Union’s mission is to provide quality and relevant teaching and learning in academic, technical, and health science programs that are affordable, accessible, and responsive to the diverse needs of our students, community, business, industry, and government. In the Technical Education and Workforce Development Division, we interpret this mission as meeting the needs of students by meeting the needs of employers in our community, which in turn enhances our curriculum and the instructional opportunities available to our students.
