Mercedes Benz® Program
Interested in starting a career with Mercedes-Benz? Love the idea of working with luxury cars? Apply to be part of the ﬁrst ever Mercedes-Benz College Automotive degree, now available at Gwinnett Tech!
The first-ever Mercedes-Benz College Automotive degree is now available at Gwinnett Tech and offers students the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of automotive repair with a focus on Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
Graduates of the Mercedes-Benz College Automotive Program have a solid foundation with exposure to the latest technology and entry-level access to Mercedes-Benz automobile technician positions in a prestigious Mercedes-Benz dealership where they provide top-of-the-line customer service. A Mercedes-Benz service technician begins their service by inspecting the vehicle and then diagnosing any issues. The Mercedes-Benz service technician will then complete the required maintenance and repair of the vehicle and its parts, including changing oil, giving tune-ups, checking fluid levels, and rotating tires. They also repair and/or replace worn parts, such as brake pads and wheel bearings. The program is offered at our Lawrenceville campus. Program classes are scheduled for day or evening, and students begin the program during the fall semester.

Issues affecting a background check may hinder a students’ participation in an internship program and may prevent a student from completing the program and/or securing a job upon graduation.
Students must be at least 18 years old to start the program.
