In both programs you’ll learn the same auto mechanics skill content. Graduates of both programs typically start out as technicians.
The Auto Technology associate degree program has more general studies course in the curriculum such as Math, Physics, etc. These general courses may help prepare you for mid-management positions or completing a four year degree.
The technical diploma program (Automotive Technician) has fewer general studies in the curriculum. Because of this, you do spend some additional time in the lab working on automotive skills.
A waitlist always forms for both programs so the earlier you apply the better.
If you have already completed an application and want to know what number you are on the waitlist, contact academic advisising at 608-246-6076 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes. You may take general studies classes before you enter into the program. To find these classes, look at the Automotive Technician curriculum sheet or the Automotive Technology curriculum sheet, which lists all required classes. General studies courses are identified by an 800 course number (for example, Intro to College Math is 10-804-106).
No. Because this program has a waitlist Automotive classes are full to capacity with program students. As a result you cannot register for our program classes before being admitted into the program.
