Career/Technical Curricula 79 Career/Technical Curricula Career and technical education exist on the DCB campus to provide students with an opportunity to utilize industry-specific skills as they prepare to enter the workforce. The degree program curriculum requirements integrate general education with career education competencies to allow the programs to be in part transferable.
