Automotive Service Technology

The Automotive Service Technology program prepares graduates for technician jobs in automotive dealerships and independent repair facilities.

The program combines classroom, lab, and, in some cases, internship experience in all aspects of automotive diagnosis and repair. Students use hands-on applied learning with high-tech tools and systems to acquire knowledge and skills which foster the ability to continuously adapt to an ever-changing technology.

Arts & Sciences curriculum supports the technical skills students learn as well as enhances students’ oral and written communication skills and critical thinking ability. All instructors are ASE (National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence) certified technicians.

The National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation, the branch of ASE which certifies and accredits automotive education programs, has certified Dunwoody in all areas of service and repair.
