Demonstrations of automobile hydraulics, custom painting, and transmissions in the transportation disciplines, as well as a plasma cutter from the manufacturing discipline were among the favorite exhibits.

Jobs in the transportation industry are projected to increase by as much as 22% by the year 2020. Events such as these help to recruit enthusiastic students to become proficient in Advanced Transportation and Manufacturing disciplines, and then go on to fill those much-needed jobs.

The Transportation Workforce Institute works in partnership with Los Angeles Trade-Tech College and is located on the LATTC campus.
