The Community College of Allegheny County provides a supportive and transformative learning environment that prepares graduates to meet critical needs in the region’s workforce.
At CCAC, we believe that life outside the classroom is an important part of your college experience. Each CCAC campus has a variety of activities to enhance your lifestyle – including athletics, cultural events and personal development seminars.
The CCAC Educational
Foundation is the fundraising and benefactor arm of the college. It seeks to
create vital connections between the college and the wider community
to ensure the ongoing viability of the college.
Certificates and degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) prepare students for entry-level employment in bio-remediation, biotechnology, computer and information technology, electronics, engineering, computer-aided drafting, laboratories, manufacturing and software design.
Certificate programs in STEM help students develop the skills and knowledge they need to prepare for entry-level positions in the specific field. Graduates who wish to continue in their field can complete additional courses required by the Associate Degree program of their choice.
Career programs are intended to prepare participants to enter the job market after completion of the Associate Degree at CCAC. Skills learned should allow the graduate to immediately become a productive member of the engineering team. In addition, the graduates could continue their education by transferring to a Baccalaureate Degree.
