TCC is Oklahoma's largest community college with more students and more degree earners than any other community college in the state. We offer students a choice of 235 associate degrees and certificate of completion programs of study. TCC students come from every walk of life, and our graduates work in all sectors of business and industry to help build a stronger, more diverse economy.  Four campuses (Metro, NE, SE, and W) serve the Tulsa, Oklahoma area.
If you're passionate about electronics, criminal justice, horticulture, engineering, computer networking, human services, fire emergency services, interpreter education or aviation science, "Northeast" is the campus for you. Located near Tulsa's industrial and aerospace hub, the campus is perfect if you're seeking a career in high-tech business or service-focused careers.  Along with a strong educational curriculum, the campus is home to the Resource Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, offering access to higher education for all segments of the population.

The TCC Electronics club started in the early 1980's on the NE Campus which is where the Electronics and Engineering Technology classes are offered.  Amateur Radio activities were added in 2000 (the year an instructor came on board as the only HAM operator), and we became an "ARRL" affiliated club in 2005.  Now the TCC-ARC station consists of two towers for HF and VHF, along with two EME and Radio Astronomy arrays.
