The Associate of Applied Science in the Automotive Technology program provides a comprehensive study in automobile maintenance and repair. The program will emphasize skills needed to help the student function successfully in the field, including exposure to the skills needed for new technology as it evolves. The AAS will include all 8 ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) areas and cover all the tasks set forth by ASE/NATEF. A key component of the program is to help students become self-directed learners and develop life-long learning skills. Students must pass all occupational courses with a 2.0 or higher. Returning students who have AUTO classes more than 5 years old must repeat the class unless they are current Michigan or ASE certified in that area. Note: students must provide their own hand tools and safety glasses.
