Associate of Applied Science - Automotive Technology

Is there a future in an Automotive Technology career?

The Bureau of Labor Statistics names automotive technology as one of the top 20 jobs with relatively high median earnings and the potential for significant job openings over the next decade. The jobs run the gamut from line technician to service consultant, service director or storeowner. Employment can be found working in parts, distribution and the growing field of high-performance machining and rebuilding. Still other technicians find themselves moving into sales, marketing and business management. Countless automotive aftermarket executives got their start turning wrenches.

Why choose a career in Automotive Technology?

Unlike many high-tech careers that require extensive and expensive college training, automotive technology careers can begin after two years of college. As with any career, lifelong learning and updated training are necessary, but the simple fact is, students in automotive technology can get out into the real world sooner — and with less college debt.
