What will I learn?

Do you have a love of vehicles? Do you thrive at problem solving? The automotive technology program may be a great fit for you. The auto tech program teaches students about engine construction, fuel and ignition systems, power trains, brakes, transmissions, electronic and diagnostic equipment and more.
