Why Choose the Automotive Technician Program?
It’s a good time to be an automotive student! With the ever-changing technology, cars are growing faster, safer and more fuel-efficient. Semi-autonomous vehicles are already on the road, and fully autonomous vehicles are not far off. Our Automotive Technician program immerses students in hands-on learning that includes the newest technology so they are prepared for a career after graduation.
The 85,000 square-foot automotive facility features state-of-the-industry paint rooms, computer labs, classrooms and glassed-in shop areas.
