From the President

Welcome to CareerFocus!

Wake Tech has always focused on students – their interests, their goals, and what they need to realize their dreams. And we know that those goals and dreams are as unique and diverse as the students themselves.

The diversity of our student body makes us strong, and dynamic. We design and tailor programs that meet a wide range of needs and offer pathways to all kinds of future success. We’re always innovating, expanding, and embracing new ideas.

Women have emerged in fields long dominated by men, such as automotive and construction. Women are also in high demand in STEM fields – the science, technology, engineering, and math disciplines that run our world. Our courses and programs reflect those changes and so many others.

Take a look at all we have to offer and let us help you reach your goals.
