Career and Technical Education (CTE) is an educational program that aligns academic standards with technical knowledge and skills to prepare students for careers in current or emerging occupations and further education. CTE is the only educational program in which course content is guided by business and industry input.

There are a number of Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs at our Hawaii Department of Education High Schools and at our University of Hawaii Community Colleges. CTE programs provide students with the opportunity to gain work experience through hands-on classes, internships, and industry-certification opportunities. CTE programs or Career and Technical Education programs—depending on the school, provides a wide range of learning experiences through different career paths, fields, and industries. From skilled trades such as automotive technology, construction, or electrical contracting, to programs as diverse as agriculture, architecture, business, culinary arts, engineering, healthcare, or veterinary medicine.
