Area of Study - Transportation (MET.TRAN)

If you are unsure about choosing your college major, you can select an Exploratory Area of Study. This gives you the opportunity to explore academic options before deciding on a particular major. You'll also have the chance to work closely with an academic counselor to weigh the benefits of each major and develop a personalized education plan that fits your interests. Classes within each area of study have been carefully designed to allow you the chance to explore and move you forward toward your further educational and career goals.

In the Transportation area of study, you'll prepare for a career that keeps vehicles on the road and connects people and products to their destinations. If it's automotive you are interested in, you'll learn diagnostic, mechanical, and repair skills in a newly renovated service lab. In the CDL program, you'll prepare for an in-demand career as a truck driver, providing goods that keep our economy going.
