While the desire for public transportation may be making a comeback, we live in a culture that loves cars. If you are interested in the future of the automobile or the automotive industry, a degree in automotive technology may be your thing. There are both associate and bachelor's degrees available in automotive technology, though the programs may focus on different aspects of technology.
A degree in automotive engineering technology is generally a four-year program that focuses on the engineering skills needed in the career field. Students will study mechanical testing and automotive engineering processes. Transportation is constantly being redefined, and from electric to self-driving cars, a degree in automotive technology could lead to careers in innovative technologies. This degree may not be found at many schools, but there are several programs out there. These degrees may also offer or even require internships with large automotive companies, and the universities will most likely have on campus shops for hands-on learning.
