Long Beach City College’s commitment to producing highly skilled students has taken flight with the opening of the campus’ Aviation & Automotive Technology Center on Tuesday.
The center aims to pursue the latest techniques and technologies in the fields of aviation and automobiles, particularly hybrids. It includes 20,000 square feet of student lab space and four state of the art classrooms.
“These are high wage jobs that will create tremendous opportunities for the 500 students in the programs,” said President Eloy Ortiz Oakley-
Cars can be driven directly into the classrooms and hangers are available for students to work on airplanes. A focus on the future is highlighted by LBCC’s commitment to teaching the latest in hybrid equipment, mechanics and technology.
