Morrisville State College faculty member Ray Grabowski talks about Morrisville's automotive programs and the Factory Five give-away car which students worked on at the 2010 Syracuse Nationals.
Morrisville State College was selected by the Syracuse Nationals, partnering with Factory Five Racing, Inc., to build the 1933 Ford hot rod which will be given away at the 2011 Syracuse Nationals. Morrisville State College students are planning and building the car.
Morrisville State College offers several automotive bachelor and associate degrees. These programs offer diverse curricula in automotive technology and repair, automotive business management, autobody technology, and more.
The Automotive Department at Morrisville State College has a 70 plus year history of educating students in Automotive Technology. The learning experience students receive reflects the hands-on, technical nature of the college as an outgrowth of theoretical knowledge. Students gain a wide range of skills performing live work in technologically sophisticated laboratories and also gain real-world experience staffing a customer reception area and parts room. Auto students also have the opportunity to attend and participate in national events such as SEMA and the Syracuse Nationals.
