Mike Schnur, (center, white shirt) of Jaguar Land Rover North America, provides insight into the new I-Pace Jaguar that was driven from New Jersey to Columbus State for Friday’s interactive professional development session.

Nearly 40 people converged at Columbus State’s Delaware Hall Automotive Facility June 22 for an up-close look at some of the latest advanced vehicles. It was part of an interactive professional development session providing an overview of lucrative careers in Automotive Technology.

The event included details of the College’s new Logistics Engineering Technology (LET) degree program. The two-year degree combines Logistics with Supply Chain Management. According to the Columbus Chamber of Commerce, one in nine jobs in central Ohio is tied to logistics. As part of the LET early college experience, students explored careers in transportation, particularly automotive service and repair. 

Local high school teachers – who were at Columbus State for most of the week learning about logistics programs - were among those attending the two-hour session. They will now have background knowledge to share with their students about careers in logistics, supply chain management and automotive technology. The “roadmap” to automotive careers can begin with entry-level technicians earning $25,000 to $50,000 annually, to Master Certified Technicians earning $100,000.

Columbus State’s Automotive Technology program works with 128 different employers including Byers Imports, which helped make it possible for an expert from Jaguar Land Rover North America to be on hand. Both companies have career opportunities available for students earning degrees from Columbus State. The College’s new LET degree puts students on that path. Details of the program are here:
