Career Focus

Local businesses have pledged their support through curriculum development, lessons, mentoring, field trips, and possible senior internships to help prepare students with lifelong skills in workforce readiness. The focus will be on Engineering and the pathway Industrial and Technology Education. Bakersfield and Kern County offer many career opportunities in engineering and other STEM related occupations. In addition to the major oil producers and refineries, we have a network of companies that support both the agriculture and petroleum industries. The Kern job market is understaffed in the areas of instrumentation, automation, process control, maintenance, fabrication of control systems, petroleum engineering, and process control engineering.
