Finding the Best Mechanic & Repair Technologies Undergraduate Certificate School for You

Mechanic & Repair Technologies is one of the most popular majors in the nation, ranking 3rd of all the majors we analyze. In 2018-2019, 107,435 degrees and certificates were awarded to students with this major.

With all the trade school programs available today, it can be tough to choose which one is the best for you. You're no longer limited to schools in your local area, either, since online programs are becoming more prevalent.

Along with in-depth profiles of schools and the programs they offer, Trade College Search has created the Best Value Mechanic & Repair Technologies Undergraduate Certificate Schools to help you in your search for the best school for you. This report analyzed 208 schools in the United States to see which ones offered the best value undergraduate certificate programs for mechanic and repair technologies students. The goal was to highlight schools with more affordable prices than others offering similar quality experiences.

This ranking is not just a list of inexpensive schools. We also consider each school's quality, since we believe a low-quality school may not be a 'bargain' at any price. More specifically, we discount our quality score by the published tuition and fees charged by a school. This gives the cost per unit of quality for each college. The value is determined by how much quality your dollar buys.

For nationwide and regional rankings, we use out-of-state tuition and fees in our calculations. Average in-state tuition and fees are used for our statewide rankings.
