The Universal Technical Institute’s Monster Jam open house gave area high-school students interested in the automotive industry a chance to get a personal look at the big trucks touring with Monster Jam.
The event hosted by UTI’s Houston campus brought more than 1,000 students out on Friday, Jan. 22.
Students had the opportunity to see the Son Uva Digger Monster Jam truck live as well as Ryan Anderson, the driver. Several UTI’s graduates work on Monster Jam teams so it was also a moment for attendees to get a look at a potential career.
“Each year, our Monster Jam Open House is an opportunity for high school students interested in STEM careers to visualize career opportunities,” said Darrin Brust, UTI’s Houston campus president. “Getting an up-close look at Son Uva Digger and talking to the driver teaches students the complexity of today’s vehicles and the sophisticated, high-tech training required to work on engines, whether it’s a monster truck or a regular vehicle.”
