In industrial plants and motor vehicles basic environmental pollutants and trained human factors play a significant role for the reduction of pollution. This paper briefly describes the effect of chemical science, for the various stages used in the automotive technology training, in the Vocational Higher School in Turkish Higher Education System. The methodology used to improve the learning process in the associate degree level to undergraduate, for the automotive technology program unit emission systems course in the internal combustion engine emission laboratory. The aim of this automotive program is the design of products and process that maximize resource and energy efficiency, while minimizing waste, and thus reduces the environmental pollution. In the modern automotive technology, emission analyzers equipped with the skills to develop these sustainable technologies are particularly valuable. At the end of the training; automotive technicians perform laboratory and field tests to monitor environmental resources, and determine the contaminants and sources of environmental pollution. The best job opportunities exist for those with good diagnostic and problem-solving skills and who have been trained in basic electronics skills and new technology systems in the new vehicles.
