Recommended Tools for A.A.S. Degrees

All automotive students are required to provide their own hand tool set. The following list of tools will serve as a guide for all 2-year program students. Students will receive assistance in selecting their tools during the first week of classes at the freshmen and sophomore orientations. Weber State University does not sell tools.  These tools may be purchased from any vendor of the student’s choice and substantial discounts are available from most vendors.

Other suppliers of tools may have similar programs.

 

The complete tool list is shown. Tools may be purchased over a period of time to match the course requirements. All tools and the upper and lower toolboxes are required by the beginning of the first co-op session.
