Career technical education provides students with technical skills and academic knowledge needed to be successful at work or in post-secondary education. Foothill students have access through ROP and academies to a variety of offerings, covering a broad range of careers.

Career and technical education covers a variety of challenging fields in diverse subject areas that are constantly evolving due to the changing global economy. Some of the career areas that students may enter through career and technical education include: agriculture (farmers, animal scientists, turf grass specialists); trade and industrial (automotive technicians, carpenters, electricians); business and marketing (entrepreneurs, financial officers, arts/graphics designers); family and consumer sciences (management and life skills, executive chefs, hotel managers); health occupations (nurses, physical therapists, biomedical engineers); public safety and security (EMTs, emergency management and response coordinators); and technology (3D animator, computer engineer, biotechnical engineer).
