Are you a high school junior looking for something to do this summer? It’s not too early to start preparing for a career while you learn in-demand, real-world skills used in the transportation industry. Make the most of your summer and enroll in this no-cost program.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The skills you learn in our Summer Ignite Program can kickstart your UTI education.
UTI’s Summer Ignite Program courses will train high school juniors in automotive, diesel, motorcycle and collision repair mechanical technology. The skills taught are the same as those in our full-tuition program courses—but offered here at no cost to you.33
Students who decide to attend UTI after graduation from high school can get credit toward their UTI education after successfully completing the Summer Ignite Program.32
COURSE TOPICS WILL INCLUDE:
How vehicles are designed and manufactured
Vehicle physics and safety
How gasoline and diesel engines work
Computer management and control systems
Fundamental diagnostic, maintenance and repair skills
Information on industry career opportunities for qualified technicians
TECHNICIANS ARE IN DEMAND
The U.S. Department of Labor projects that by the year 2026 there will be more than 1.2 million job openings in the automotive, diesel and collision repair industries. To help reach that total, the transportation industry will have to fill more than 120,000 technician job openings annually on average.12
THE SAME COURSES AT NO COST
UTI’s Summer Ignite Program will be a series of three-week courses based on the same curriculum offered in the programs that full-time UTI students complete.
UTI’S SUMMER IGNITE PROGRAM SUPPORTS YOUR SCHOOL’S STEM INITIATIVES
Students will have the opportunity to apply their Science, Technology, Engineering and Math skills to real-world scenarios, experiencing firsthand the role STEM plays in the modern job market and economy.
Students will discover the advanced chemistry of air and fuel mixtures, and octane ratings. They also will learn about the physics of motion and vehicle safety systems.
Students will learn how technical and computer systems have revolutionized transportation, gaining an understanding of how sensors, microchips and processors manage power, safety and performance.
Students will become familiar with the mechanical aspects of vehicle functionality and performance, learning current industry techniques and standards that affect driving dynamics, aerodynamics and other characteristics that make vehicles work.
Students will be led through the life cycle of vehicle development—from design, assembly and manufacturing to maintenance and repair—and learn how math makes this all possible.
WHO CAN ATTEND?
High school juniors who live within 50 miles of a UTI campus and fulfill admissions requirements will be able to attend one or more of our Summer Ignite courses. Want to find out more? Give us a call!
