Working on today's cars requires an understanding in the science and technology that goes into the modern, highly-sophisticated automobile. At WyoTech, students spend time in the classroom and then apply what they've learned to actual shop projects.
Our facilities include modern tools and diagnostic equipment in step with the industry's most successful shops. Using these, students will explore everything under the hood of today's automobiles and learn how to diagnose and repair problems.
Automotive Technology Training includes:
* Basic Engine Management Systems
* Driveability Diagnostics
* Drivetrain Systems
