Automotive Technology @ CR

The Automotive Technology program at College of the Redwoods offers certificates and an AS degree in Automotive Technology. Programs in this field provide basic and advanced educational opportunities for students seeking careers in the automotive service industry, including service technician, specialty technician, and parts or service manager. The library supports students in these programs by providing selected resources.

If you are trying to find materials relating to your topic, you will probably get the best results by using one or two specific words rather than a sentence.  Try both singular and plural forms, and if there are common synonyms try them one at a time.

  • Alternative fuel vehicles
  • Automotive pollution control devices
  • Manual transmission
  • Automobile diagnostics
  • Hybrid vehicles
  • Auto Body Repair


Using the specific manufacturer, make, model, or types of cars may help narrow your results if you get too many.  You can also search for specific automotive systems or parts, such as:

  • Brake maintenance and repair
  • Prius charging system
  • Fuel systems
  • Sensor coils
  • Springs and suspension

Credo Reference is an extensive online collection of reference materials and resources available to CR students and staff.  In this guide, you will find many links that pull directly from Credo's resources.  However, you can also search Credo's Technology & Engineering references by typing your terms into the box below.
