Therefore, it is imperative we understand and respect the scientific principles that keep it in motion. It is vital that all graduates leave OTC with the scientific knowledge necessary to be responsible leaders in our community.
We offer courses in physics, engineering, chemistry and pre-pharmacy. Topics include geology, environmental chemistry, engineering dynamics and much more. Our instructors foster students’ abilities to apply the methods of scientific inquiry.
We also offer the Associate of Arts in Science degree in physics, engineering and chemistry as well as a certificate in engineering. Upon completion of the required course sequence, students will have gained a comprehensive understanding of physical matter and forces in our universe.
