Ready to start a challenging new career in automotive engineering? Start with a comprehensive education at one of Michigan's 13 schools. Four schools have Associate's-level programs and 12 schools have Bachelor's level programs. There are 12 schools with Master's degree programs and eight with PhD programs. The average cost of tuition in Michigan is $10,300 per year.

A comprehensive education in automotive engineering is an absolute must. You can meet your educational requirements by earning a Bachelor's degree from an accredited school. While taking courses like Methods for Vehicle Testing, Materials for Automatic Applications, and Vehicle Diagnostics, you complete 120 or more credits. This degree generally requires four years of full-time study.

A Master's degree or PhD can prepare you for careers in the research sector. While a Master's degree takes two years and a PhD takes seven years, both degrees require courses like Automotive Body Structures, Advanced Combustion, and Embedded Control Systems.

No matter which degree you pursue, you will likely be required to complete a set number of lab hours every semester. Lab hours give you the chance to work directly with engineering materials and vehicle parts.

Tuition rates vary widely in Michigan, depending on your residency status and which school you attend. If you're looking for a school with low tuition costs, look into Montcalm Community College, where tuition is $91 per credit for residents and $254 per credit for non-residents. On the other end of the scale, Andrews University costs $12,708 per semester for residents and non-residents.

As soon as you are accepted to a school, you can begin applying for engineering scholarships. The Michigan Society of Professional Engineers awards scholarships to student members every year.

After you have graduated with your Bachelor's or Master's degree in automotive engineering, you can apply for licensure via the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs. You may receive your license after successfully passing the Principles & Practice of Engineering exam.

O*Net reports that most automotive engineers in Michigan earn between $57,000 and $118,300 per year, with an average salary of $85,800 per year.

As a new engineer, you may benefit from membership in a local group like the Michigan Society of Professional Engineers. Consider joining for networking opportunities and new job listings.
