Automotive Technology Management
Bachelor of Science Degree (B.S.)

Pennsylvania College of Technology's Automotive Technology Management program is a bachelor of science degree structured to meet the needs of the automotive service, education/training, and manufacturing industries.

This major is designed to function as a "two-plus-two" major, with the students completing the required course work of an applied technology curriculum in either the automotive or collision repair areas for the first four semesters, which enables the student to petition to graduate with the appropriate associate's degree (A.A.S.) prior to the junior year.

The final four semesters emphasize skills essential to a management career within the automotive industry; supervision and personnel management, customer service, sales, problem-solving methods, organization and planning techniques, as well as proficiency in communications and mathematics.

This major is available online via distance learning.
