Career Education

What is a Career Education (CE) program?

Career Education (formerly known as Career Technical Education, or CTE) is a term for educational programs that specialize in skilled trades, applied arts and sciences, and modern technologies. CE programs are designed to advance job skills and marketability.

Not all jobs require a bachelor’s degree or even an associate degree. Our Career Education faculty have industry experience and connections with regional employers, so they are able to design curriculum specifically to what employers are expecting. Our programs also provide students with internships, work-based learning, and industry certification opportunities. CE offers a wide range of learning experiences spanning many different career tracks, fields, and industries.
