With the continuous increase in competition among car manufacturers in recent decades, the demand for this profession is growing rapidly and now all the manufacturing companies seriously invest in technical support groups (garage, after sales, spare parts, etc.), aiming at the best customer service. As an auto mechanic you are ensured a profession with a high salary and a secure future.


Nowadays the development and technology applied to cars require specialized knowledge. To obtain such knowledge a vocational programme of studies is necessary. The various new systems in cars these days, including the engine auto-stop system when not needed (e.g. at traffic lights) and activated when needed (auto start-stop technology). Also, smart energy storage and recovery systems are widely used in modern cars. The programme of automotive engineering, aims firstly and foremost to give students the necessary typical knowledge of cars and operating systems needed to operate a car and then the specialized knowledge of the new systems. In this context, the aim is to fully prepare students by enhancing their knowledge through practical laboratory courses and summer practice in the industry. Emphasis is also given on the proper functioning and organization of the workshop (garage), which is an important criterion for a new business to succeed.

The objectives of the Programme are:

  • The theoretical and practical training of the students on the issues relating to internal combustion engines (gasoline and oil), as well as their subsystems.
  • The specialization in modern diesel engine systems, which have evolved considerably in recent years.
  • The theoretical and practical training of students in vehicle electric and electronics.
  • Providing expertise in issues concerning safety and organization in the workplace.
  • Theoretical training in issues concerning alternative fuels, hybrid technology and other forms of energy in vehicles.
  • Providing expertise in modern engine and vehicle management systems.
  • The theoretical knowledge and practical training of students in powertrain technology, steering and suspension of vehicles.
  • The theoretical and practical training of students in car heating and air conditioning systems.
  • The theoretical and practical training of students in issues regarding car checks and diagnosis.
  • Awareness of students on environmental issues in the workplace.
  • Practical knowledge in the proper use of tools.
  • Knowledge and skills of vehicle repair and maintenance obtained through laboratory courses, but also through industry courses (during the summer practice).

Career Prospects

Your professional development includes working on:

  • Repair and car maintenance-related business.
  • Car-related business marketing (importers).
  • Power generation-related business with internal combustion engines
  • Service and vehicle inspection organizations (MOT).
  • Finally, you can create your own business.
