Automotive Technology | Associate Degree

Vermont Technical College

Description

As automobiles become more complex, the people who service these vehicles must possess extensive knowledge of the sophisticated mechanical, electrical, and computer systems currently used. The Vermont Tech Automotive Technology program provides students with the technical education increasingly in demand by automotive manufacturers, dealerships, independent repair facilities, and equipment manufacturers.

You will acquire knowledge through a broad exposure to mechanical and electronic automobile devices through classroom and laboratory experience. Significant study time is devoted to electronic control of mechanical systems, system design considerations, and the analysis and diagnosis of system failures as well as  traditional hands-on skills. This Associate of Applied Science (AAS) program includes a 10-week summer cooperative education requirement that provides students with real-world experience and the opportunity to explore future employment.
