Auto-Mobility: Preparing for a Job and a Career:  You’re taking classes in the automotive trades to get a job, but if you boost your reading and writing skills, working with cars can be your career. You can only go so far with hands-on skills. Why not set your goals higher? You need reading and writing skills to become an estimator, appraiser, or a proprietor. This Learning Community combines four levels of Auto Collision Repair and English composition in the same accelerated 9-week program. Whether you are Level 1, 2, or 3 in Composition, you can enroll in this hybrid (face-to-face/online) English class to complete Eng 78A, 78B, 79 or 1A. If you are so motivated, you could become proficient in auto body restoration and meet the writing requirements for an AS or AA degree. In this Learning Community, you’ll read and write about the auto industry: great cars, winning drivers, grueling races. You’ll write everything from business letters to research papers – all about cars, the mobility machine of the masses. Contact English Professor Paula Sheil at psheil@deltacollege.edu or Auto Trades Professor Larry Mariani at lmariani@deltacollege.edu for more information.

Auto body prerequisites for each group are listed below. English prerequisites will be determined by selected ENG course.

Pipeline to an Engineering Career I:  Do you enjoy designing and building things? Do you enjoy knowing how things work? You should think about becoming an engineer. According to a study completed at Georgetown University, out of the top 10 majors with the highest earnings, 8 of them were a form of engineering. You can start now on that path towards a career in engineering! This learning community is designed for students who are ready to pursue an education in engineering and are ready to start with Calculus. In ENGR 001, students will gain a broad understanding of the many different types of engineering, what is required to become an engineer, and how the design process works. In MATH 001, students will begin their studies in calculus to prepare for more advanced engineering courses. In CHEM 001A, students will be introduced to the fundamental principles of chemistry. In addition, all students enrolled in this learning community will have access to University of Pacific’s free drop-in tutoring and complementary course advisement by major. Students who complete the required courses with a minimum 2.75 GPA are also guaranteed admission into the engineering program at UOP, if they choose to attend. 

If you are interested in registering for this learning community, please contact Applied Science, Business and Technology Division at (209)954-5230 or asbt@deltacollege.edu to obtain the course codes. You may also contact Professor Rocky LaJeunesse at rlajeunesse@deltacollege.edu in the Counseling Department.  If you are interested in the opportunities at the University of the Pacific, contact Dr. Gary Martin at gmartin@pacific.edu for more information.
