The Car Mechatronics Program is a collaboration between Chattanooga State's Engineering Technology Division and the Volkswagen Group of America Chattanooga Operations. Read more about Volkswagen Academy
The goal of the program is to educate students in complex automotive systems from the power train, electronic controls, occupant safety systems, and aesthetic aspects of the automobile.
Students gain knowledge and hands-on training in manufacturing processes, welding, automotive technology, automotive electrical/electronic systems, protection systems, body work and paint, and technical drawings.
The Car Mechatronics concentration requires a separate application, and students are chosen from a pool of applicants through a competitive selection process based on testing and interviews. Students are challenged throughout the program and must be at college level in all subjects. Students must follow Volkswagen's policies and meet attendance expectations to remain in the program.
