Sample Careers and SUNY CCC Program
(reference: Occupational Outlook Handbook, bls.gov.ooh)

Information Security Analyst What you'll do: Information security analysts are the gatekeepers or security guards of information systems. They plan and execute security measures to shield an organization's computer systems and networks from infiltration and cyberattacks. They prevent, monitor and respond to data breaches and cyberattacks. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Cybersecurity A.S. 
Software Developer What you’ll do: Software developers design, build, and maintain software and applications. Software developers invent the technologies we sometimes take for granted, for example, apps to engage social media. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Computer Science A.S. 
Network and Computer System Technician or Administrator What you'll do:Network and computer systems administrators are responsible for the operation of a business's or organization's networks. Technicians set up, maintain, upgrade, and troubleshoot computer network hardware and software. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Information Technology A.A.S.
Statistician  What you’ll do: Statisticians practice the science of using data to make decisions. They decide what data they need and design experiments, collect data, analyze and interpret data, and report conclusions. Statistics can be applied to a vast number of fields such as the environment, public safety, health care, and sports. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Liberal Arts and Science: Mathematics and Science A.S. 
Mathematician What you'll do: Some mathematicians conduct research to explore and develop theories; others are applied mathematicians who use theories and techniques to solve everyday problems. Mathematicians also analyze and interpret data to inform decision making, such as in business, engineering, or science. Jobs for mathematicians include teachers and professors, financial analysts, and systems analysts. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Liberal Arts and Sciences: Mathematics and Science A.S. 
Mechanical Engineer What you'll do: Mechanical engineers research, design, develop, build, and test mechanical and thermal sensors and devices such as tools, engines, and machines. They often have an innate curiosity about the way things work and enthusiasm for solving problems. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Engineering Science A.S.
Mechanical Engineering Technician What you'll do: Mechanical engineering technicians assist with manufacturing processes in factories or with development phases in research and development labs before manufacturing takes place. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Mechanical Technology: CAD Design A.A.S.
Electrical Engineer What you'll do: Electrical engineers design and develop, and test electrical systems that process information and transmit energy. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Engineering Science A.S.
Electrical Engineering Technician What you'll do: Electrical and electronics engineering technicians help design, develop, maintain, and troubleshoot develop computers, communications equipment, medical monitoring devices, navigational equipment, and other electrical and electronic equipment, for example, in manufacturing. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Electrical Technology - Electronics A.A.S.
Civil Engineer What you'll do: Civil engineers design infrastructure projects and systems such as building buildings, roads, and dams. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Engineering Science A.S.
Environmental Engineer What you'll do: Environmental engineers uses the principles of engineering, soil science, biology, and chemistry to develop solutions to environmental problems. Areas include waste disposal, public health, and control of water and air pollution. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Engineering Science A.S.
Biochemists What you'll do: Biochemistry delves into the chemical processes of living organisms. Biochemists apply their knowledge of chemicals and perform different chemical techniques and experiments to decipher biological problems. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Liberal Arts and Sciences: Mathematics and Science A.S.
Chemical Technician What you'll do: Chemical technicians usually work in laboratories, where they conduct experiments, or in manufacturing facilities, such as chemical or pharmaceutical manufacturing plants, where they monitor production processes. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Chemical Technology A.A.S.
Chemical Engineer What you'll do: Chemical engineers often work in laboratories and offices. They help manufacturing plants develop and design chemical manufacturing processes. Chemical engineers apply the principles of chemistry, biology, physics, and math to solve problems, for example in production or use of chemicals, fuel, drugs, or food.Start at SUNY CCC with this program:Engineering Science A.S.
Environmental Scientist What you'll do:Environmental scientists research environmental and health problems to determine causes, make recommendations, and develop strategies for managing environmental problems. They also conduct theoretical research that increases our understanding of how the natural world works. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Environmental Science A.S.
Physicist What you'll do: Physicists do research and often work in teams with other scientists, engineers, and technicians. Physicists also work on applied physics, for example, focusing on fiber optics, medical, or nuclear physics. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Liberal Arts and Sciences: Mathematics and Science A.S.
Astronomer What you'll do:Astronomers study planets, stars, galaxies, and other celestial bodies. They use ground-based and space-based equipment, some to study distant stars, galaxies, and phenomena such as black holes, and others to monitor space debris that could impede satellite operations. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Liberal Arts and Sciences: Mathematics and Science A.S.
Data Scientist What you'll do:Data scientists gather and analyze large amounts of data and create algorithms to solve large problems. in a diverse range of industries, including technology, pharmaceuticals, health care, financial services and government. Start at SUNY CCC with this program:Liberal Arts and Sciences: Mathematics and Science A.S.
Architects What you'll do: Architects create the overall look of buildings and other structures. Architects take into account the function, safety, and uses of buildings. Architects may be involved in all phases of a construction project, from the initial discussion with the client through the final delivery of the completed structure. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Liberal Arts and Sciences: Mathematics and Science A.S.
Technical Support Specialist What you'll do: A technical support specialist is to provide assistance and maintenance to all computer systems and hardware. Their work may include installing, configuring, and updating hardware and software, as well as fixing any issue related to the equipment that may come up on a daily basis such as working a help desk. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Information Technology A.A.S.
Computer & Information System Manager What you'll do: Computer and information systems managers, or information technology managers, are the guides who help organizations navigate technology. They deliver short- and long-term vision for the company's technology needs and goals. Even though most IT managers have the technical skills to execute the various jobs of the workers they supervise, they are more likely in a meeting room than a server room. Start at SUNY CCC with this program: Computer Science A.S.
