Campus: Scott Community College

The Automotive Technology Associate’s Degree will enable individuals to secure positions in dealerships or independent garages as a technician or service writer in training, or work in the automotive parts industry. A degree in automotive technology will provide a foundation that can help individuals advance within the industry. Students completing the degree will have an opportunity to work in a paid co-op position. The co-op results in full-time employment for many students.

Students may also begin this program in the spring term with slight modifications to the course sequence.

The Automotive Technology Program admits students in the Fall and Spring semester every year. Graduates from our program are prepared to pass certification exams in all of the following eight areas: Engine Repair, Manual Drive Train and Axles, Brakes, Heating and Air Conditioning, Automatic Transmission/Transaxle, Suspension and Steering, Electrical/Electronic Systems, and Engine Performance.

Some of the graduates of this program will work in shops as general line technicians performing work on all systems of the vehicle. Others will work in specialty shops that specialize in just certain areas of the vehicle such as brakes or transmissions. Graduates may also work in related areas such as service advising or parts distribution.

The Automotive Technology program has achieved certification from National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE).
