Cisco Systems Regional Network Academy

Cisco Systems Networking Academy logoSuffolk County Community College as a Cisco Systems Regional Network Academy provides Cisco course work (XH60, XH61, XH62 and XH63) for a complete range of basic through advanced networking concepts - from pulling cable, through such complex concepts as subnet masking rules and strategies.

The format for the classes reflects the content: interactive lessons are stored primarily on the classroom's own Cisco Web server. To promote development of the personal skills that underpin successful careers, projects require students not only to resolve technical issues but also to successfully address network users' needs.

United States Department of Energy Office of Science Education Opportunities

US Department of Energy logoCommunity College Institute (CCI)  The Summer Institute for Community Colleges is designed to provide educational training and research experience during ten weeks in the summer at a Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratory for highly motivated community college students.

Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI)  An opportunity for an undergraduate student to work with a scientist at one of the national laboratories associated with the DOE. This program is supported during the fall and spring semesters and summer term.

College Science & Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) Mini-Course The Mini-Course offers New York State CSTEP students an opportunity to participate in a four day introductory mini-course in Bioinformatics to be held at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) during the school winter break. CSTEP also partners with BNL for an educational training and research experience during the summer, similar to the CCI program described above.

General Motors ASEP, Toyota T-TEN, Honda PACT, AC DELCO, ATAC Comprehensive Automotive Program

Today's automobiles may have 40 or more onboard computers or micro processors that control engine management, navigation, emissions, occupant safety as well as other systems. These highly complex vehicles require highly trained individuals with advanced technical skills. Technicians today must therefore possess a greater combination of skills in many areas such as computer sciences, engineering, electronics, hydraulics and mechanics. Students interested in pursuing a future in the high-tech, high-wage automotive industry have several training options available at SCCC:

General Motors, Automotive Service Educational Program (GM-ASEP):  This 2-year A.A.S. degree program is designed specifically for students interning in a GM-based sales/service operation.

Toyota, Technical Education Network (T-TEN):  This 1-year certificate program is geared to students who are in an internship at a Toyota or Lexus dealer service/sales operation.

Honda, Professional Automotive Career Training (PACT):  This 2-year A.A.S. degree program is designed specifically for students interning in a Honda or Acura based sales/service operation.

AC-DELCO:  This 2-year A.A.S. degree program is geared specifically to students working in an AC DELCO-based vehicle service operation.

ATAC Automotive Program:  This comprehensive 2-year A.A.S. degree program trains students to work with any dealership, franchise or independent automotive shop.

Oil Heat Comfort Corporation: Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration

Identified as a profession offering significant income potential in the Long Island region, SCCC's collaboration with Oil Heat Comfort Corporation (OHCC) of Hauppauge led to the development of two degree options that respond to the need for trained service personnel to deliver quality repair and maintenance service to residential users of oil heat: a 2-year Associate in Applied Science and a 1-year Certificate.
Both SCCC and OHCC recognize that heat must be provided in environmentally acceptable ways and that energy conservation can be advanced by proper training. The curriculum was established to address these concerns, and also provides for continuing education courses to upgrade job skills for air conditioning and gas heat technicians.


SCCC provides free mechatronics training through 2008 in conjunction with local advanced manufacturing firms, industry associations and educational institutions, in areas such as automation and control systems, tolerance, specifications and instrumentation, and machining processes. Funded by a grant from the federal Community-Based Job Training Grant program administered by the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration, the program offers 6-month and 1-year industry certifications, including internships with partnering companies. The goal of the program is to enhance career pathways and opportunities for students wishing to enter the manufacturing field. Contact the SCCC Corporate Training Center at 631-851-6229 for further information.

Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP)

Suffolk County Community College's Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) project provides academic support services to underrepresented and economically disadvantaged students pursuing careers in mathematics, science, technology and health-related fields.
The program is open to any student with at least a 2.8 GPA (or a high school average of at least 80) who is majoring in a field related to mathematics, science, health, computer science or engineering. Those pursuing careers in licensed professions such as mathematics or science teaching, law, social work and psychology are also eligible.

Students must also meet the New York State Education Department criteria:
     • underrepresented or economically disadvantaged, and
     • matriculated and taking at least 12 credits each semester.
Major program components include:
     • tutoring for all courses;
     • advising;
     • career-related field trips and seminars;
     • job shadowing and interning experiences at Brookhaven National Laboratory and with STEP;
     • transition programs for graduates continuing their education at four-year institutions.

In addition, Suffolk partners with Brookhaven National Laboratory, SUNY College at Old Westbury and SUNY at Stony Brook to provide research and networking opportunities to CSTEP students. Brookhaven National Laboratory provides tours, talks/seminars, job shadowing and summer internships for select CSTEP students. SUNY College at Old Westbury provides a network and conferences for students pursuing careers with a focus on math/science education and social sciences. Stony Brook University provides a network for students pursuing careers with a focus on medicine, science, engineering and social science.
