President's Welcome

Dr. Sheila Ruhland

Welcome, and thank you for visiting Moraine Park Technical College. You will quickly find that Moraine Park isn't your typical college. Students come to us for a variety of reasons whether to complete a degree, earn a certificate or advance their training through continuing education classes. Whatever the reason, from beginning to end, our faculty and staff are dedicated to guiding students to their chosen path.

Moraine Park strives to meet both the needs of our students and the demands and standards of employers in our communities. Our programs are tailored in a way that promotes a real-life connection from the classroom to the workplace, giving students the skills and tools they need to be successful in their career.

Our faculty and staff also understand that learning isn't always an individual experience and that true growth can occur outside of classroom walls. Through Service Learning, Moraine Park focuses on a blend of real-life work experiences and community driven projects. These projects give students a chance to see the impact their contributions have on the communities in which they live and learn.

Moraine Park is continually working to improve our programs, facilities and equipment to give students every opportunity to be as successful as possible. We also offer a wide variety of flexible options for students including international and online learning opportunities, associate of applied science degrees, technical diplomas, apprenticeships, certificates and business training. All are available at our Fond du Lac, Beaver Dam and West Bend campus locations. I am confident we can provide you with what you are looking for. We look forward to serving you.
