IMPORTANT: Degree and certificate requirements may change! Please consult an academic advisor before enrolling.

Automotive Technology programs can lead to an Associate in Applied Science degree, but many students take classes for job enhancement or personal interest. Either way, our automotive classes prepare students for jobs in the automotive industry.  The Mechanical Option prepares students to work in dealerships, service centers, or independent repair facilities.  The Collision Repair Technology Option, which includes courses offered by participating articulation agreement schools, prepares students to work as collision repair technicians.

Two additional degree options include General Motors ASEP Option and the Ford ASSET Option. (Note: These 2 programs have special admission requirements.)

The Automotive Technology Department also offers three certificate programs, which include Automotive Technology Certificate Program, Automotive Service, Maintenance and Light Repair and the Collision Repair Technology Certificate Program.
