Conveniently located in the southeast Twin Cities suburb of Rosemount, Minn., Dakota County Technical College has been delivering first-rate public, two-year higher education since 1970.
From the beginning, our college's mission has been to provide our graduates with the knowledge, skills and training to advance their careers and succeed in a global economy.
More than 300 DCTC faculty and staff are fully committed to lifelong learning. In line with our mission, we continue to create and maintain strong, inclusive relationships with other institutions of higher education, business and industry, and our surrounding communities.
As one of only five public technical colleges in the state, DCTC focuses on real-world experience in our shops, labs, classrooms and the community without sacrificing extracurricular options that are integral to higher learning.
Our motto is "Make it Happen." That motto is the key to everything we do and works not only for our students, but for everyone at our college.
