EWD provides leadership and coordination for many exceptional programs offered at Pasadena City College. PCC's many career and technical programs prepare students to seek entry-level employment and technical skills upgrading for those currently employed.
The curricula are developed in coordination with advisory committees that consist of faculty, administrators, and industry experts that ensure the latest standards and technology are integrated into our programs. The department also coordinates articulation between PCC's CareerTech programs and area high schools. The office administers federal programs for career education and job training, manages special grants and projects related to career and technical education programs and economic development services.
