That’s the philosophy you’ll find when pursuing the automotive technology Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) degree at SUNY Morrisville.
Going beyond the traditional automotive education by emphasizing advanced technical and business management courses, the program evolves with the ever-changing automotive industry so you will be ready for whatever you want to pursue.
Through hands-on work as a technician using the latest diagnostic equipment, body and collision work, automotive sales and service, after-market and specialty products, you’ll be on track to immediately enter supervisory and management-level positions in any of these operations.
We back up that claim by offering leading-edge technology in advanced diagnostics, repair and even customer service and inventory control. You’ll learn and work in our state-of-the-industry facilities set up just like an automotive dealership to provide true-to-life experiences through numerous repair stations, a parts department, live service desk and a vehicle showroom.
You’ll find your mentors among our outstanding faculty, who have worked in the industry and maintain contacts with automotive companies and support industries for all makes and models. Partnerships with industry leaders such as Fiat Chrysler, Ford and Subaru support the learning environment with new technology, vehicles and factory certifications.
You’ll end your studies with a required internship, further providing you with a true industry experience and helping put you on the right track following graduation.
You also have the opportunity to join SUNY Morrisville’s Automotive Club to extend your knowledge of the automotive industry through video tutorials, professional engineers and field trips. Open to the entire student body, the Automotive Club supports a fall and spring car show on campus each year and participates in the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) automotive trade show.
