"Alfred State graduates come to us with good work ethics and they are well prepared for entry-level employment."
Lori Rich, Service Advisor, Mastel Ford – Lincoln, Olean, NY
Program Advantages: 

Automotive students are very active, taking their skills to the road. In addition to the daily hands-on, live lab work, many students are involved in project-based learning activities that include competitions in the Green Grand Prix at Watkins Glen, land speed record racing at the Bonneville Salt Flats, the ELK (Everyone Loves Kids) Charity Challenge, and The Great Race.

Students perform lab exercises on licensed, driven vehicles and have labs taught by experts who have real-world experience.

Professional Outlook: 

Graduates can earn a salary of $49,011.
