About The Program

 

Prepare for an exciting career with Wake Tech’s associate’s degree program in Baking & Pastry Arts – or choose a certificate or diploma option that can be completed in less time. Daytime and evening classes are available to accommodate busy schedules.

Baking & Pastry Arts programs prepare students for quick entry into the industry, in a variety of positions: baking/ pastry assistant, area pastry chef, and assistant pastry chef, among others. With experience, graduates can advance from entry-level positions to pastry chef, cake designer, or bakery manager.

Employment opportunities include restaurants, hotels, independent bakeries and pastry shops, wholesale and retail markets, and high-volume bakeries. The programs also provide students with the skills and knowledge to start their own businesses.
