Quinsigamond Community College
For over 43 years, Quinsigamond Community College in Worcester, MA has provided thousands of men and women opportunities for a first-rate education and personal growth, whether preparing them for immediate entry into the workforce, transfer to bachelor level programs in four-year colleges and universities, or for personal and cultural enrichment.
The Automotive Technology Program curriculum was designed by Ford Motor Company to prepare technicians for Ford/Lincoln Mercury dealerships. The program features hands-on training on late model vehicles as well as classroom instruction.
Upon successful completion of the Automotive Technology Program, the graduate will fill the need of the many dealerships in the Central Massachusetts area and beyond. The graduates will have studied both technical and general education disciplines. The technical courses are aligned with the eight specialty areas of automotive service and are scheduled in a progressive order. This progressive order allows the student to learn and apply the basic skills needed early in the program. The knowledge and skills are expanded as they progress and are reinforced in late courses. The general education courses are designed to expose the students to the world beyond automobiles.
