State Tech’s Automotive Technology Program


[Music] in the automotive department here at state Tech we cover several different options we cover every aspect of the car we also have the general option light duty diesel hi-performance and the electric hybrid program that students can choose from we do spend some time in the classroom but the shop work is the most important because I actually get hands-on training every vehicle out in the shop right here is a customer car just like they would do in a regular automotive shop so the customers bring them in the students repair them we make it bill on it and the customers come pick them up and drive them home so it’s real-world experience just like they would get out in industry I was having a hard time trying to get into the automotive field before coming here and we had a super guy come in and he did a lecture in mr. Branson’s class and after class he brought me to the side and asked me what I was doing where I lived and everything and told me to come by Subarus so I went by the next day within a week or two I was hired and that was my first semester here it’s really neat having the hands-on stuff because like each teacher here teaches different we have a few that ever actually still in the field working we have some that are just out of the field each teacher teaches different with the hands-on aspect so some shows you shortcuts some shows you the by-the-book way so it’s it’s nice to be able to do that I’ve been here for about 14 years now then there’s a lot of new things that are get a really good that are going on now like the activity center and the b-pack building and things that weren’t here before so students have more activities to do while they’re here we you know the nicer newer facilities and the updates are you know we have a lot of pride in what we do so we want our equipment and our buildings to be the same way you
