Goodland, KS. (08/22/2021) – The Carpentry program at Northwest Kansas Technical
College received funding from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation in support of their
expansion and renovation project.
The Carpentry workshop is a collaborative space where students come together to design,
create, and build items of their own creation through inquiry-based learning. The
renovation includes projects such as expanding the facility by removing a wall, adding
storage rooms for better organization, student lockers for security, adding a safety station,
and bathroom updates. The renovation project will enable the entire building to be usable
by the program students.
The Carpentry program at Northwest Tech provide students with relevant learning
experiences supported by qualified and experienced faculty and staff, modern technology,
and physical facilities designed to enhance the learning environment. The program
courses are focused on various disciplines with work-based experience. Instructors
conduct lectures, demonstrations, shop time, and campus work projects alongside course
material. Students are prepared for employment in the residential-commercial carpentry
construction industry by the end of the two-year program.
