The Automotive Service Technician (AST) degree builds on the General Service Technician I certificate by providing advanced repair and diagnostic skills for placement as an automotive technician. Students alternate between classroom study and a dealership internship to develop additional theory and higher levels of hands-on skills and earn certifications with our industry partners: Subaru University, Nissan Technical Training Academy and National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3).
The job outlook for automotive service technicians is projected to remain strong over the next decade. AST graduates may first be hired as maintenance technicians and will apply their skills to higher-level diagnosis and repair of all automotive systems.
