About Us


Minneapolis Community and Technical College (MCTC) is a public two-year college located in downtown Minneapolis. MCTC enrolls nearly 15,000 students annually and is an active partner in initiatives designed to strengthen the social, economic and cultural vitality of the Twin Cities metropolitan area.

Created in 1996, under the umbrella of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) system, MCTC is the result of the merger of two institutions: a technical college with a long history of vocational education dating back to 1914 and an open-enrollment community college established in 1965. Currently, the spacious campus covers 21.6 acres of land and recent expansions include a new state-of-the-art Science Center, culinary kitchen and dining hall, Student Center, outdoor plaza and Workforce Development Project Technology Building (T Building) remodel.

Master Facility Plan: 2011

The Master Facility Plan is designed to help Minneapolis Community and Technical College plan for and reinvent the future of its campus. The plan provides a framework for campus-specific planning and is supported by the community. Campus Facilities Master Plans are created for each MnSCU institution and are updated every five years.
