The Bachelor of Science in Automotive Technology builds on the college’s existing Automotive Technology Program. Our current program—which is well aligned with the automotive industry both regionally and nationally—provides a solid foundation for the development of the new bachelor’s program. Successful candidates for employment within organizations requiring a baccalaureate degree in this field need high-level advanced Automotive Technology skills and knowledge. Graduates need to be technically competent and possess strong interpersonal skills, such as the ability to communicate effectively, solve problems, work in teams, and pursue continued professional development. The primary goal of the proposed Bachelor of Science in Automotive Technology Degree (ATD) is to provide the automotive industry with employees with these skills. Students will receive training in various business, management, and technical courses such as Managerial Accounting, Leadership, Marketing, Advanced Vehicle Systems Design, and Performance. Other courses will emphasize soft skills, such as communication, business, and technical writing, and human relations.
