Normandale Community College Spring 2024 Semester Vacuum and Thin Film Technology

—Registration for Normandale’s spring semester 2024 classes is currently open.—

Normandale Community College offers a program in Vacuum and Thin Film Technology that consists of college-level course work for educating the technical/technician workforce in vacuum technology.  The following vacuum technology (VACT) classes are being offered in the spring semester.


VACT 1010 “Foundations of Vacuum Science” (2 credits – NO prerequisite), delivered in a fully online, asynchronous format.

  • Section 01: 16-weeks (Monday, January 8th – May 10th)
  • Section 02: 8-weeks (Monday, January 8th – March 1st)
  • Section 03: 8-weeks (Monday, March 11th – May 10th)

VACT 1010 addresses the basic chemistry and mathematics concepts that are used in subsequent VACT courses.  VACT 1010 is appropriate for individuals who have not previously taken a chemistry course.  VACT 1010 is delivered in a completely online, asynchronous format.  There are NO live class/lecture sessions to attend in a course delivered in a completely online, asynchronous format; students access course content on their own time and complete assignments on a weekly schedule.

COSTSThe cost of tuition and fees are waived for VACT 1010 provided a student registers to take the class for a grade.  The only out-of-pocket cost to take VACT 1010 is the cost of the course workbook (~$30).  Students can also register to audit VACT 1010.  The cost to audit VACT 1010 is ~$450.
