Mercer County Community College Expands Automotive Technology Program


WEST WINDSOR, NJ – Mercer County Community College is excited to celebrate the expansion of its Automotive Technology Program with a focus on Electric Vehicles. With the concept of mobility changing, MCCC recognizes the importance of equipping students with the skills necessary to excel in the quickly evolving transition to electric vehicles.

As demand for electric cars booms with the expectation that, due to government regulations, technology and consumer behavior, it will continue to grow, MCCC Automotive Technology Program Coordinator, Jason Evans, is always searching for ways to stay one step ahead. “The move toward furnishing the automotive program with essential tools and equipment will signify our commitment to remaining at the forefront of innovation and prepare our students for the electric revolution in the automotive industry.”

The addition of MCCC’s first fully electric vehicle, provided by a federal Perkins grant, will be used to elevate students’ educational experience and equip them with the essential skills in the fast-growing field of electric vehicle repair beginning this spring semester. “The ability to train MCCC students to service electric vehicles is incredibly important, not only for our students, but also for our community who will increasingly need those services,” said Dr. Deborah E. Preston, President.

MCCC’s Automotive Technology Program teaches students about current automotive technology trends by completing up-to-date training curriculum in the classroom and through hands-on work in an automotive lab. Students learn how to diagnose, repair and service current automotive technologies, demonstrate desirable work habits and communicate effectively and professionally. Internships at area dealerships complement the curriculum and generally move into full-time employment.
