St. Cloud Technical & Community College

Washing clothes. Taking a shower. Getting a drink of water. Running through a sprinkler. All of these activities share one expectation. When the water is turned on, it’s going to be there. This is something we take for granted every day, thanks to the expertise and care of those in the plumbing field. And when plumbing isn’t working, we rely on the quick response of these same individuals.

A plumbing degree provides the skills and know-how to efficiently, safely, and effectively move water where it needs to go. This may mean moving horizontally across a single story home or vertically up 15 floors in an apartment building.

Want career flexibility? With a plumbing degree, you can put your skills to work in construction, as a service technician, pipefitter, or sprinkler fitter, and in facility maintenance. You can even own your own company.
