Program Description

Automotive Technology students have the opportunity to develop skills necessary to obtain employment in the automobile industry. An automobile technician services and repairs mechanical, electrical, and computer driven parts on different types of automotive equipment. After making necessary inspections and tests to determine the cause of the faulty operation, the technician then replaces the defective parts to restore the vehicle to the proper operating condition. You will also have the opportunity to earn your Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certifications as well as Occupational Safety and HEalth Administration (OSHA)10.

Students are encouraged to suggest or bring in their own projects and are given more time in the lab to complete larger repairs. However, all projects must be approved by the instructor.
