  • Touring the Technology Center of DuPage

This week, I had the opportunity to tour the Technology Center of DuPage with other state legislators and see the great opportunities the Center offers students in our community. TCD features a quarter million square foot campus, state-of-the-art technology, and up-to-date skills instruction used in today’s high-demand careers. TCD lets students learn at their own pace through a hands-on learning plan that uses field-specific mathematics, science reasoning, language arts and technology in real wold applications. 

On campus, students have the opportunity to operate their own business including a restaurant, bistro, and deli. During our visit, we even had a great breakfast provided by the culinary students!

There is also an automotive repair shop, full-service salon and a preschool. These programs set students up for success by giving them the opportunity to earn transferable college credit, qualify for apprenticeships and prepare for industry, state or national licensing and certification exams. Over the past four years, TCD seniors were awarded over $1.5 million in scholarships!

TCD prepares students not only for a job after graduation but also an evolving career path. If you would like more information, here is the link to their website:
