Driving the Future: A Look into the Future of Work for Transportation Technicians

With the advanced evolution of technology in the foreseeable future, the transportation sector is expected to experience more change in the next decade than we’ve seen in the last 100 years. Flying taxis, electric vehicles, and autonomous vehicles are just a few of the technologies predicted to be the future of this sector. Academic institutions must develop holistic training programs to prepare students to understand and adapt in a rapidly changing industry. How do we prepare the next generation of transportation professionals who will service the vehicles of the future? How will the classroom reorient to meet the changing demands of an increasingly technology-driven and globalized world?
