NSCC is a public two-year college that is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. This accreditation allows the College to offer degree and certificate programs in the fields of arts & sciences; business & public services; nursing & allied health; science, technology, engineering technologies, mathematics (STEM) and industrial technologies.
The College also offers non-credit classes on over 300 subjects. These courses are offered through Custom Training Solutions, a division of NSCC.
Northwest State Community College was founded when the Ohio Board of Regents approved the formation of Four County Technical Institute in 1968. The College offered its first classes one year later. In 1972, the College moved to its current location and was renamed Northwest Technical College.
In 1994, Northwest State officially became a community college. This enabled the College to offer Associate of Arts and Associate of Science programs that could easily transfer into a four-year degree program at partnering colleges.
Since that time, the Northwest State campus has continued to grow. Today, the College offers classes at the main campus in Archbold, Ohio, as well as various satellite locations.
Archbold: Main Campus
Van Wert Location: Vantage Career Center

STEM & Industrial Technologies
The Science, Technology, Engineering Technology, Mathematics (STEM) and Industrial Technol-ogies Division offers a variety of majors including CAD/CAM, computer science, cybersecurity and network administration, electrical, mechanical and electro-mechanical engineering tech-nology, industrial electrician, machining and CNC programming, and maintenance techni-cian/mechatronics. The division also houses the general education and transfer courses in mathematics and natural sciences.
Students that graduate from the STEM & Industrial Technology fields are critical thinkers and problem solvers who will provide the innovation that leads to new products and processes that sustain our economy. Most jobs of the future will require a basic understanding and application of math and science, as noted by the U.S. Department of Labor, indicating 15 of the 20 fastest growing occupations require significant mathematics or science preparation. While graduates of these programs are ready to join the workforce, many choose to transfer and earn their bachelor’s degree in the STEM & Industrial Technology fields from various colleges and univer-sities.
The division also offers a bachelor’s completion program in electromechanical engineering technology from Miami University, completed fully on our college campus.
