Transportation-Intelligent Transportation Systems Concentration

Program Description:

The Transportation Technology Program provides a specialized distance learning education and training for the student having an interest in management and wishing to pursue a career in the intermodal transportation industry.  All forms of business and industry are tethered to a trade and transportation skilled workforce for their own success.   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 a 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).
