To begin a career in automotive engineering, you must have a Bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university. This degree is very comprehensive—it includes 120 credits, which you complete over the span of four to five years. You take a range of engineering classes, including Vehicle Diagnostics, Kinematics of Mechanisms, and Materials for Automotive Applications. Hands-on experience is an essential part of this degree; you can plan on spending several hours in the engineering lab every week to get a range of practical engineering skills.

If you want to take your education and career to the next level, a Master's degree or PhD may be the next step for you. A Master's degree, which takes two years, and a PhD, which takes seven years, both require some of the same classes. Courses at this level include Advanced Combustion, Fuel Cells & Fuel Processors, and Mechanical Vibrations.

Evaluating tuition rates and financial aid opportunities is an important step in your school selection process. Pennsylvania tends to have fairly high tuition rates, but many schools have excellent financial aid programs. Point Park University is one of the more affordable options in the state, with a per-semester tuition rate of $12,990. The Pennsylvania College of Technology has one of the highest tuition rates in the state. Students pay $14,940 per semester.

Consider applying for grants and scholarships to save money on your educational costs. The Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers Philadelphia Chapter awards scholarships to local students.

If you want to represent yourself as a Professional Engineer, you must get your license from the Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers. At this early stage in your career, you may benefit greatly from membership in the Engineers Society of Pennsylvania. Membership gives you access to job postings and special educational opportunities.

O*Net reports that most automotive engineers earn between $50,300 and $113,500 per year. The average salary is $74,700 per year.
