Transportation

Transportation affects our lives in a multitude of ways. Transportation systems move raw materials to manufacturers and finished products to consumers locally, nationally, and globally. Individuals use transportation systems every day for business, work, and pleasure. Transportation technology courses provide students with opportunities to understand transportation systems from the perspective of either the consumer or the service provider. The range of courses enables students to study both vehicle ownership and vehicle maintenance, and to develop skills and prepare for careers in the servicing and repair of vehicles, aircraft, and/or watercraft. In addition, students will develop the Essential Skills and work habits that are important for success in the transportation industry.
