The opportunity is available for students to explore custom painting techniques using air brushes, mini guns, and many other tools.

In Auto Body Collision Repair at MSC Southeast in Winona, our students develop strong problem-solving skills through hands-on learning and classroom instruction. You will learn how to access and interpret product data sheets, service information, and estimating guides. Students have the opportunity to take the coursework to earn I-CAR industry accreditation. Most importantly, you'll work on real vehicles in our state-of-the art facility.

Auto Body Collision Technology is certified by the ASE Education Foundation (formerly NATEF), making the program at Minnesota State College Southeast one of only a handful of schools in the United States certified in the four major areas of Auto Body: Refinishing, structural, non-structural, and mechanical/electrical.
