Automotive Technology Associate Degree
Did you know a modern car holds more computers than the first spaceship? In fact, newer cars can have up to 38 computers that communicate with each other over an elaborate network system. Because today's vehicles are so electronically advanced and computerized, the automotive industry relies on technicians with advanced training and abilities – technicians like the graduates of Texas State Technical College.
And In Texas, a state boasting over 72,000 miles of state and federal highways, this is especially true. With so much wear and tear on the cars that travel our roads, there will always be a need for trained professionals, no matter what the economic climate.
TSTC’s AUT program is ranked the leader in post-secondary automotive education. Backed by faculty with dozens of years of industry experience and an advisory board comprised of automotive industry leaders, TSTC offers a curriculum that matches what employers today are seeking.
Students spend approximately 60 percent of their time working in sophisticated labs learning first-hand the actual trade on the latest equipment valued at approximately $3 million. You can also rest assured your skills are current, because the AUT program is certified by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation and its instructors are certified by National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence, a standard most employers – and car owners – look for in today’s competitive climate.
