Our state-of-the-art welding lab is designed to help students advance their skills in the field. The food technology lab features courses taught by Chopped Champion Chef Eliza Martin, who guides participants in creating gourmet dishes.

For nearly a decade, MiraCosta TCI has been a leader in offering accelerated work skills programs. These programs enable individuals to gain job-ready skills in just one semester. “Having all of our key programs in one location will allow us to better serve our community,” said Linda Kurokawa, TCI’s Executive Director. “This includes implementing the latest technology, like a second brew house for our BrewTech program.”

Beyond the new labs, the open house will also spotlight TCI’s community enrichment classes. Guests can participate in demonstrations and activities in art, music, cooking, and wine tasting led by our expert instructors.
