Michael Ronan

Professor, Automotive Trades Department

“Throughout high school and my undergraduate years hot rods and sports cars remained a passion. During my second year at Georgetown Law School, I finally realized that cars, not the law, should be my life’s focus. After attending a top auto program at Skyline Community College outside of San Francisco, I worked as a Rolls Royce technician before moving home to Western New York.

“My area of teaching specialization is the automotive drivetrain. Most students approach the course with tremendous enthusiasm despite the complexity of the subject, and that enthusiasm is channeled to carry the students’ learning experience far beyond their own expectations. Underlying the technical aspects of the course are many subjects just as important: business ethics, customer interface protocol, interpersonal relationships within the shop, and the development of professional work habits and appearance.”
