Our programs in Automotive Technology are certified by NATEF (National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation) and offer you comprehensive coursework in the fundamentals of all mechanical, fuel, and electronic systems found on modern vehicles including gasoline, diesels and hybrids.
Emphasis is placed on hands-on learning in the laboratory and through cooperative education experiences, where you have the opportunity to earn money, university credit, and on the job training as part of your education. Course content in both programs prepares students for successfully passing as many as eight Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification tests. Students can also participate in industry sponsored technician programs such as Ford Maintenance and Light Repair (MLR).
Automotive Technology program offerings include a Bachelor of Science degree, an Associate of Applied Science degree, a minor, and a certificate program. Course content in all programs allows you the chance to learn, begin a career, and return to expand your knowledge without losing credits or repeating courses.
The one-year certificate and two-year associate’s degree will prepare you to enter the profession as a technician in a dealership, independent shop, or maintenance facility.
Baccalaureate graduates may enter the industry as technical representatives, service managers, specialized diagnosticians, or in similar mid-management positions with companies such as Ford, GM, General Electric, and Toyota.
Minors in a variety of areas allow you to explore interests that complement the automotive major. Students looking forward to management and supervisory positions are encouraged to choose electives that will enhance their communication and organizational abilities.
