Southwest Technical College

The Southwest Technical College (SWTC) Allied Health and Technical Building will provide critical technology training in response to regional workforce and economic development needs. This facility will include 68,861 square feet of state-of-the-art training space for Allied Health, Manufacturing, Culinary Arts and Welding programs. According to local industry leaders, the region is already experiencing shortages of skilled laborers in these key occupational clusters. State projections provide further evidence of the facility’s criticality, showing that growth rates in these job sectors will exceed the region’s rapidly growing population.

The instructional space vacated by programs moving from the current facility to the new building will allow the remaining programs to expand enrollment capacity and increase instructional effectiveness. Overall, it is estimated that the new building will increase the College’s capacity by 150%. At its current rate of enrollment growth, SWTC expects to reach maximum capacity in the new building within five to seven years. Both Method Studio and Hughes General Contractors are working on this project.

The SWTC Allied Health and Technical Building is the College’s and the Utah College of Technology (UCAT) Board of Trustees’ top priority.
