SCC ranked in four categories by Community College Week

Southeast Community College is ranked in four categories according to one publication’s annual listing of the top associate degree producers in the United States.

Community College Week, which publishes its annual Top 100 Associate Degree Producers list each summer, ranked SCC second nationally in the number of graduates in Precision Production, only the third time since 2004 the College did not rank No. 1 in the category. The SCC programs Community College Week includes in the Precision Production category are Computer Aided Design Drafting, Manufacturing Engineering Technology, Precision Machining and Automation Technology, and Welding Technology.

SCC’s No. 2 ranking in Precision Production is identical to the 2013 ranking.

The 2014 report is an analysis of data provided by the U.S. Department of Education. Community College Week’s list includes many four-year colleges and universities who grant associate degrees.

Other categories and SCC rankings for 2014:

Agriculture, Agriculture Operations & Related Sciences, seventh among two-year schools and No. 12 overall.

Engineering Technologies and Engineering-Related Fields, 12th among two-year institutions and No. 22 overall.

All Disciplines – Non-Minority, 38th among two-year institutions, 53rd overall.

Community College Week is published biweekly in Fairfax, Va., and claims to be “the independent voice covering community, technical and junior colleges since 1988.” Throughout the history of the rankings, the publication has changed the names of categories that SCC regularly found itself.

Community College Week analyzes data from approximately 1,200 community colleges in the U.S. to compile its annual lists.
