For over 40 years, WCC's open-door admissions policy, affordable tuition rates, and high-quality classes have attracted students from local communities and around the world. More than 18,000 register for credit classes each year, and thousands more enroll in Economic and Community Development classes. WCC's diverse student body includes more than 1,000 students from over 100 foreign countries.
WCC's small classes allow for lots of individual attention. The average class size is 23 students. That's a fraction of the size of many basic classes at four-year colleges and universities.
WCC also emphasizes convenience. It offers classes seven days a week, at night, and online. And transferring is easy because WCC has agreements with four-year schools throughout Michigan.
WCC Advanced Transportation Center
One day in the not-so-distant future, every city in the country will be a 'Smart City'. All transportation infrastructure will be connected. Vehicles will send and receive communication from traffic devices, making travel routes faster, safer and more efficient. Cars, busses, trains and planes will operate as a part of an intricate web of wireless technology.
This technology is developing rapidly, which means that transportation and manufacturing professionals need to stay compliant, up-to-date and innovative.
The Washtenaw Community College Advanced Transportation Center was established to meet those needs.
Preparing professionals and skilled laborers for the industries of:
- Intelligent Transportation Systems, especially vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication
- Advanced Manufacturing, such as the latest manufacturing machines, tools and processes, including light-weighting materials
- Automotive Services, especially testing, development, maintenance and repair, including Ford F-150 grade aluminum bodies.
