Transportation-Transit Concentration

Program Description

The Transportation Technology Program provides a specialized distance learning education and training for the student or current industry employee having an interest in the transportation field. This unique on-line, distance learning and life-experience curriculum breaks the tether to the traditional classroom. It is designed to support a drop-in/drop-out lifelong learning philosophy of continuing education and laddered degree options from a certificate of achievement for specific skill sets to an Associate’s, Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in transportation studies. In addition to formal academic credit, the program is designed to accept related credit equivalency from any academic, vocational, or industry training program to include documented life-long learning skills, test-out exam, industry recognized certifications, and/or continuing education units (CEU’s). The Transit option provides transit employees, such as transit drivers and maintenance personnel, with the opportunity to earn college credit for their industry, company, and on-the-job training, while brushing up general education skills and expanding their knowledge about the transportation industry through online or live courses.
