Many opportunities are available for individuals who want to help people, build or repair things, or use technology instead of being confined to a desk.

“Many of our professional-technical students, particularly those enrolled in industrial programs, receive job offers before they graduate,” — LCC President Chris Bailey.   Watch the video

LCC's professional-technical programs feature a range of certificates and degrees designed to prepare people to go to work. Unlike academic programs, which often involve more time in the classroom, professional-technical programs feature lab and field opportunities that mirror the working world.
