Self-driving cars are a growing industry but not a common field of study in traditional colleges. Udacity, which debuted an online education program last year to help fill the jobs demand, is now adding an introductory "nanodegree" on the topic. It will also add a nanodegree next year inspired by the nascent "flying car" industry.

Remember: Today we discuss self-driving cars as a certain future, but "this wasn't the case 3 years ago," Udacity co-founder and president Sebastian Thrun told Axios. Thrun was one of the earliest to work on Google's self-driving technology and a winner of the DARPA Grand Challenge.
