What is an associate degree in automotive engineering? This degree provides students with the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of automotive vehicles’ systems and parts. Students who earn this degree often take many classes in math and science, and some programs offer hands-on training when teaching about engines, transmissions, or electrical systems.
