Why did you choose to attend Morrisville?
"I came to visit the campus and seeing the Automotive Building for the first time astonished me! The building is amazing with all of the glass, sitting atop the hill that overlooks the campus and the village. Additionally inside the building the classrooms and the labs had cut-a-ways of engines and partially disassembled vehicles that really got my interest at the time."
Automotive Technology (Ford ASSET Option) A.A.S.
Morrisville State College offers FORD ASSET in its menu of automotive offerings. This program, sponsored by Ford Motor Company, allows students to earn an associate degree while being involved in a cooperative education experience with a participating dealership.
Through the program, students interview with a dealer and get sponsored then simultaneously enroll in the ASSET program at Morrisville. Students take regular college classes at the college then work over the Christmas break at the dealership, doing meaningful paid work. Students return for a second semester at the college then work again at the dealership during summer break. The process is repeated during the second year.
In classes, students learn automotive subjects using Ford supplied vehicles and components. Much of the training is Ford specific, and upon graduation, students will be Ford certified in many subject areas and also earn an A.A.S. degree in Automotive Technology.
