Suffolk County Community College has been named a Top 20 school for automotive technology. Suffolk was selected from 140 nominations across 60 schools in the United States by WIX Filters and O’Reilly Auto Parts, partners with Tomorrow’s Tech Magazine as title sponsors for the School of the Year competition.
“Our automobiles contain complex computer and electronic systems that require highly trained technicians who are proficient in math, science and computer technology,” said Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay. “I congratulate our auto technology department, the faculty and staff on this honor.”
The top 20 schools have been asked to submit a video highlighting their tech programs. Judges will review the video entries and select four finalists. The winner will be selected from the four finalists with a surprise ceremony in October and a formal announcement on Oct. 31.
This is the ninth annual search to find the best technical training school in the U.S.
