Whether you are planning to pursue a baccalaureate degree after earning your associate degree, enter the workforce, or enhance your workplace skills, we have a breadth of over 17 programs and 17 certificates to help you achieve your goals.

Our school offers programs spanning a breadth of areas including Business Administration, Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts, Electronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Information Technology, Game Development, Computer Science, Digital Media Technology, Mathematics and Criminal Justice. We also offer certificates consisting of three, four or five courses that are designed to enhance your workplace skills and improve your competitiveness in the employment market. The certificates cover areas as diverse as Finance, Small Business Management, Web Development, Information Security, and Computer-Aided Drafting.

To give you a glimpse of what we offer, perhaps I can share with you the wonderful student work that I encountered in a day in my life as a dean. I met students working with NASA and was honored to sign the locker that students designed and manufactured in our labs that will go into the Space Shuttle, I ran into a student who reminded me to attend our Hackathon where our students’ Cybersecurity skills will be put to use, I reviewed the designs of the new Food Trailer to be used by our culinary students to learn how to be Food Truck Entrepreneurs, Computer Science students shared with me what they had learned on Python day and how they are excited for our new Data Science course, I spoke with parents who are proud that their daughter will be participating in our Engineering Science program, business students congregating in front of our Stock Trading Wall described to me the current competition and who was leading in trades, and finally, I attended a demonstration of a MILO simulator – which is used to train our Criminal Justice students in critical tactical judgment in firearm situations. We hope that you will partake in these many opportunities for learning at CCM.
