All public colleges, also known as CÉGEPs (Collège d'enseignement général et professionnel or College of General and Technical Education) offer two kinds of programs: two-year pre-university programs for students who wish to continue their education at university and three-year specialized technical programs for students who wish to enter the job market upon graduation. The range of technical offerings is broad and leads to a DEC (Diplôme d'études collégiales).
Colleges also offer AEC (Attestation d'études collégiales) programs which are shorter than DEC programs and put graduates into the workforce sooner.
