Would this be a good start to get into automotive engineering?

I am really wanting to pursue a career in automotive engineering and design. I want to work for a performance car company, maybe Mercedes or Audi? I have been told by a representative at Universal Technical Institute that a degree from there would be a good start to pursue that career goal. Now I know they are trying mostly to get me to want to go into their school, that's their job. Quotes from the rep... "Think about it, All the Credits of an Auto Diesel Program 75 weeks 105.5 Credits We have major Articulation with UOP, Devry, City Univ. Ferris State, and more where the transferrability is good." "Yep it would be a Great start into an engineering Career, Meanwhile with these skills you would not be "Starving" like a lot of college students situations are like when they go directly into a 5-1/2 to 6 yr Deg. program. With all the homework and special projects they put on you it's hard working a part-time job to support yourself. Not at UTI, you go 6 hrs a day, Monday thru Friday and work a p.t. job 5.5hrs a day to pay rent & things, There's no Homework assigned so you come home after your p.t. job and rest up to do it all again the next day." Does this sound too good to be true? Is there a better way of getting to my career goal? If so what is it? I have no college credit at the moment, just about to finish high school.

They are one of these "For Profit" schools. They will teach you to be an automotive technician. That is unnecessary to be an automotive engineer. Going there will only make it take a lot longer before you start in engineering. Also DeVry and UoP are seen as diploma mills. Anything with "Technology" in the program name... More
