Auto Collision Repair Technology, Associate in Applied Science Degree
Program Description for Automotive Collision Repair
The auto collision repair field has become an increasingly complex industry. The changing design of the automobile has resulted in an increased application of ultra-sensitive high-strength steel parts and the expanded use of molded composition and plastics for exterior panels.
The increased use of sophisticated electronic systems has further mandated that repair technicians be skilled in a variety of areas outside of the actual collision repair phase. Electronics is playing a large role in the function of the vehicle and affects such areas as the brakes, suspension and steering. These areas are frequently damaged in a collision and must be dealt with in the repair of affected vehicles.
The repair ethics used in repairing collision-damaged vehicles have far-reaching effects as the legal system has played an expanded role in the negotiation and settling of customer claims and complaints. The Auto Collision program is certified in Automotive Service Excellence by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation.
