“A lot of times when you have emerging sectors, you have people in the field who have a degree, but they need training,” said Dr. Michelle Mueller, vice president of economic, community & college development. The idea for the program started when the U.S. Department of Transportation gave WCC a $10,000 grant to produce a prototype of what an online course could look like to train workers in the field. “They were looking for somebody to put a mini module together that had experience or access to resources that were from experts in connected vehicle technology,” Mueller said. Because of the college’s proximity to the University of Michigan, WCC tapped into the experience in the region that’s come from MCity and other autonomous vehicle projects in Southeast Michigan.
