Transportation impacts our lives every day. Ever travel over land, air, or water? Each of these industries has a need for transportation professionals in engineering, construction, maintenance, and operations of the transportation that keeps the world moving. At the Hampton Roads Transportation Career Expo, students will visit exhibitors, see interactive demonstrations, and network with future employers in the transportation industry.
The goal of the Expo is:
- Exposing students in grades 9, 10, 11 and 12 to transportation-related career opportunities and educating them about careers in the multi-modal transportation industry.
- Showing students transportation-related opportunities through hands-on exhibitors, equipment demonstrations, virtual demonstrations, and training simulators.
- Increasing the total number of minorities, women and disadvantaged individuals in the Hampton roads community employed in the transportation industry, including on Federally-aided highway design and construction projects.
