Auto Programs and Opportunities
Further adding to the opportunities at SCC, Tidewater Community College (TCC), located in Virginia, also provides students with auto opportunities with the help of their newly designed and state of the art facility. Totaling in 30,690 square feet, the TCC Regional Automotive Center cost around $10.1 million. Although expensive, most assert that TCC’s Center is worth the cost; the Auto Center holds 15 garage bays, tractor-trailer repair space, 9 classrooms, conference facilities, and even a showroom to display student projects!
With this larger service venue, TCC can effectively provide instruction and experience to its 404 automotive students. Also, not only will students be learning state of the art lessons and techniques, but they’ll also be able to enjoy their education in an aesthetic atmosphere; TCC’s new building won the 2009 Design Excellence for Architecture Award of the American Institute of Architect’s Hampton Chapter!
