Automotive Technology

The Automotive Technology program prepares students for a career in the vast field of automotive electronics and repair. Students gain hands-on experience in testing and diagnosing, engine drivability diagnosis, automatic transmissions, gas engines, suspension, alignment, brakes, and basic electricity.

Automotive service technicians must continually adapt to changing technology as vehicle components and systems become increasingly sophisticated.
