Automotive Technology (Associate of Science)

A student majoring in Automotive Technology must complete a minimum of 59 quarter hours in the major consisting of the core courses and technical requirements. In addition, the student must complete required cognates, general studies requirements, and all Associate of Science degree requirements as outlined in this bulletin.

The A.S. in Automotive Technology has been designed to be completed in three years. Due to the many alternating–year AUTO classes, it will generally take three years of full time study to complete the required classes for the degree. The A.S. in Automotive Technology is primarily intended for students who are already pursuing a Bachelor’s degree.
