Automotive Technology (AAS)
The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Automotive Technology is designed to prepare students for employment as automotive technicians. Instruction is given in both the theoretical and practical aspects of automotive operation, maintenance, and service. Directed lab activities provide experience in transmissions, differentials, fuel systems (both conventional and electronic), brakes, air conditioning, automotive electricity/electronics, diagnosis, emission control, engine service, suspension and steering systems. Modern, fully equipped facilities provide students with excellent opportunities for pre-employment experience.
You must earn a grade of C or better for all courses within the program.
This two-year program is consolidated into one year of automotive technology (AUT) courses, followed by two (2) semesters of general education coursework, and an automotive internship. While evening AUT certificate and degree courses are offered, this sequence is currently available as a day program only.
The semesters in which general education courses (SB, HU, COM, and Science) are suggested are flexible and may be switched in sequence. You should consider taking one or more of these courses during the summer session in order to distribute your class load more evenly between the semesters.
