NMU's automotive programs are dedicated to preparing students for, and helping them secure, stable, long-term careers in the automotive service industry.
The Technology and Occupational Sciences Department at NMU works closely in partnership with industry professionals and businesses to provide internships and employment opportunities for students, giving them knowledge, experience, and connections.
The curriculum centers on Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification standards. The hands-on technical courses are taught with small class sizes in specialized labs in a state-of the-art facility, the Jacobetti Complex.
The degree programs offered through the Technology and Occupational Sciences Department are designed to “ladder” so that the credits of a certificate or 2-year degree can be applied toward a more extensive degree, such as a B.S. in a related field, without having to make up for missing credits. To aid in this, NMU offers numerous scholarship opportunities.
