Our Story

The Industrial College was the first educational institution to design and offer curricula related to the technological field. It started in the academic year 1954-1955 at the level of secondary stage. In 1976-1977, the study program in the Industrial College was terminated and its title changed to Kuwait Institute for Applied Technology (1976), Kuwait Institute for Technology (1983), College of Technological Studies (1986), which admitted secondary school leavers or equivalents. The duration of the study program was five semesters after which the graduate obtains a diploma in his specialization. In the year 1986-87, the name of the institute was again changed to the present designation, The College of Technological Studies (CTS). This institution, in its early and present forms, has witnessed continuous development processes as a result of the country’s policy of adopting up-to-date technologies. This development was included in programs, plans, curricula, tuition systems, constructions, laboratories, workshops, etc. to keep abreast of the latest technology used in the labor market. CTS is, therefore, the PAAET institution that is closest to the needs of the development plans and the fastest to meet the escalating needs of the labor market. In the light of this background, CTS has developed its mission as follows: 'Securing quality in the performance of its graduates and qualifying them for their prospective posts at the labor market with excellence in all components of its programs.

Definition of the Objectives

The college strives hard to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Preparing technical and applied workforce at all levels to meet the needs of development in the country. This can be achieved through educational and training programs that differ in time, nature, input, and output.

  4. Routine and preventive maintenance of equipment, connections and cables.
  5. Fixing appliances and installing the necessary wiring for them.
  6. Measuring the operational competence of equipment and estimating the standard deviations from ideal operation.
  7. Selecting the best tools, appliances and materials needed for operational purposes.
  8. Performing routine maintenance of equipment and appliances.
  9. Detecting operational problems, and deciding on means and ways of repairing apparatuses and equipment.
  10. Task organization and report writing.
  11. Participating in designing specifications, inventory control, together with receiving and delivering stock articles.
  12. Respecting the systems and regulations in adoption to punctuality.
  13. Accepting membership in task forces and being enthusiastic to achieve their objectives and carry out instructions of superiors.
  14. Leading a team of assistant technicians and workers and evaluating their performance.
