Know how many car crashes happen each day? A bajillion. That might be an exaggeration. But it’s close. The good news is that means there are always people looking for skilled technicians to make their automobiles beautiful again.
Our Automotive Collision Technology program puts you on a career path where you can master the skills to fix anything from a door ding to major frame damage. With the hands-on curriculum using the latest equipment available, you’ll gain real-world experience working as a collision repair professional in our state-of-the-art shops. And we really do mean state-of-the-art. Our paint booths allow you to learn different types of paint systems and applications, as well as computerized measuring. You’ll also become skilled with welders, sanders, pneumatic power tools, and laser and computerized frame alignment machines.
Plus, there are several options available in this program. If you want to go beyond collision repair, you can spend an additional year at State Tech to earn a second Associate’s degree in Automotive Technology. And if you’re not interested in an Associate’s degree, you can pursue a certificate in Refinishing and Non-Structural Repair or Structural and Mechanical Repair.
We believe time-on-task has to be part of your education. That means time spent learning from experienced instructors in real-world environments and real-world situations. That’s why the State Tech campus is home to more than 50 labs, an automotive bay, aviation hangar, and 40+ acres of land dedicated to our heavy equipment operations program.
