Douglas’s Answer

Hi,

To the best of my knowledge, you do not need any college degree to be a mechanic. If however, you wish to be a Mechanical Engineer, you will need a 4 year degree.

Hope this helps.

BHUSHAN’s Answer

As per my understanding , you do not need any college degree to be a mechanic. The main question which raises here is, what type of mechanic you want to be? Decide it and go for it, but yes, if you need specialization in one specific field there are 4 years graduation courses present, like Aeronautical Engineering/Automobile Engineering.

Dennis’s Answer

I would echo Bradley's answer. Get experience when and where you can. Also, I searched HCC college and found their web site (HCC college). There appear to be several options in the 'mechanic" category. Diesel engine; body repair; heavy truck; brakes etc. Look at those courses and decide what interests you the most. MOST IMPORTANT: talk to a course counselor - either at your high school or at HCC; listen to their suggestions as to what curriculum and courses to follow. Also talk to people you know in the business - ask them about training and employment opportunities. This is an exciting time in automotive technology. Truck fleets report that they have difficulty filling and keeping their technician jobs. A lot of car/truck repair is now deep into electronic systems. Learn how to use the electronic service systems. And, of course, there are now electric-powered cars and trucks. So you will also need to learn about electric motors, batteries and electricity in general. Good luck to you!

Dennis recommends the following next steps:

Talk to course/guidance counselors.
Talk to experts in the field.
Get a part-time job in this field.
