Program Overview

The Kansas Institute of Underground Technology evolved from the increasing need of a trained workforce in the career fields of horizontal direction drilling and training for locating underground utilities. North Central Kansas Technical College is a leader in the delivery of technical education within the State of Kansas.

In conjunction with grant assistance from the Kansas Department of Commerce and support from Charles Machine Works/Ditch Witch, Inc., has developed the Kansas Institute of Underground Technology. The Institute that is commonly referred to as U-Tech, features a state-of-the-art up-to-date curriculum, along with hands-on practical training opportunities to allow participants/students the opportunity to successfully complete the training needed to safely operate equipment used in underground technology. As President of North Central Kansas Technical College, I invite you to scroll through our web site or give us a call to learn more about training opportunities.
