Texas State Technical College:


Message from the Chancellor

Like a proud parent, I must brag somewhat about Texas State Technical College. TSTC was established 50 years ago to help create a strong Texas. At the time, Governor John Connally predicted we would become "the most sophisticated technical-vocational institute in the country." TSTC is living true to that vision with eleven campuses in Abilene, Breckenridge, Brownwood, Fort Bend County, Harlingen, Ingleside, Marshall, North Texas, Sweetwater, Waco and Williamson County.

Indeed, with a state-wide role and mission, TSTC is doing what we were created to do. We are efficiently and effectively helping Texas meet the high-tech challenges of today's global economy, in partnership with business and industry, government agencies and other educational institutions.

TSTC graduates are highly valued by business and industry for their work ethic, knowledge and workplace skills. Whether you are considering upgrading your skills, or just starting out on your career path, I hope you take the time to personally visit one or more TSTC campuses and consider joining the family of TSTC graduates.
