UCAT Mission Statement
The mission of the Utah College of Applied Technology (UCAT) is to provide, through its regional campuses, market-driven career and technical education to both secondary and adult students, which meets the demand by Utah employers for technically skilled workers. This is accomplished through competency-based education and training programs, which may be long term, short term, apprenticeship, or custom designed for individual employer needs. Most of the programs are offered in an open-entry, open-exit format providing flexibility for students and employers. Students are assisted in acquiring the basic skills necessary to succeed in these technical training programs. UCAT prepares students to enter, re-enter, upgrade, or advance in the workplace, which contributes to economic development, and improves the quality of life for Utah citizens.
