Automotive Technology

Program Overview

Automotive technicians repair, inspect, and maintain vehicles that run on gasoline, diesel fuel, electricity or other alternative fuel combinations. Automotive technicians must continually adapt to changing technology and repair techniques as vehicle components and systems become increasingly sophisticated. For this reason, technicians must have knowledge and skill in a variety of different areas.
