About Professor Alexander

I have been teaching Brakes and Chassis Systems at Cypress College since Spring Semester 1981.  Currently I am the Automotive Department Coordinator. I believe that students learn to become great Automotive Technicians by having the opportunity to practice their skills in a real working environment.  You will  use new and customer vehicles to work on while in the AT 130 C Chassis and Brake class.
