    You can do that using the management class , you will need to add a reference to the System.Management, as well as import the namespace System.Management.
    And use the below code :
    var service = "<your service name>";
    string objPath = string.Format("Win32_Service.Name='{0}'", service);
    using (var service = new ManagementObject(new ManagementPath(objPath)))
        var result = (int)service.InvokeMethod("ChangeStartMode", new object[] {"Automatic"});
