Career Technical Education

Sacramento City College is well positioned in the Sacramento Region to provide a number of career technical education opportunities.  With eighty-nine degrees and certificates, students are able to select from a wide variety of programs that would be of interest to them, e.g. occupational therapy assistant, physical therapy assistant, registered nursing, air traffic control, 3D animation, accounting, administration of justice, office administration, computer information science, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning.

Historically, Sacramento City College has had an excellent job placement rate of students who have either earned an AA/AS degree or certificate from one of its career technical education programs.  Many of the hospitals, businesses, and federal and state offices/buildings in the Sacramento Region employ students who have completed the necessary coursework for their program major.  This is a true measure of the success and relevance of our career technical educational programs.

Career technical education involves programs of study that involve sequences of courses that combine core academic knowledge with technical and occupational knowledge to provide students with pathways for transfer education and /or careers.  Relevance of the programs is key to allow and prepare students for a wide range of high-wage, high skill, high demand careers, e.g. advanced technology, health sciences, business and finance, information communication technologies, and agriculture, water and environmental technologies.
