Office of the President

Welcome to Northwest Technical College

Whether you are preparing for college, considering a career move, planning a north woods vacation or simply interested in our community of learning, I invite you to discover Northwest Technical College.

This website is our virtual front door — an invitation to begin exploring our friendly campus, flexible degree pathways and academic excellence in automotive motorsports, business, health care, building trades and manufacturing technology.

You’ll meet people who are passionate about teaching and learning, serving their communities and developing a highly skilled workforce to meet the needs of the Bemidji region and all of Minnesota.

Northwest Technical College and its sister institution, Bemidji State University, are both proud members of the Minnesota State system. We are dedicated to student success, affordable access to higher education and providing economic opportunity for individuals, families and communities.

I hope you will join us — as a student, an employee, an alum and a friend. Visit NTC and BSU and learn about becoming a student. Meet our dedicated, expert faculty and tour our outstanding facilities.

All of us at NTC look forward to seeing you!
