About the Diesel Technology Program

The Diesel Technology program provides the student with an opportunity to master the skills and knowledge required for success in servicing, maintaining, and repairing diesel powered highway trucks, off-road heavy equipment, stationary engines, and marine craft.

Diesel Tech Students

The program is designed to prepare students for entry level employment as service technicians in the diesel powered equipment industry. Shop work is conducted in a manner consistent with industry standards regarding safety and hazardous material handling, shop organization and operation, use of hand and power tools, use of shop equipment, and the use of shop supplies and hardware.

Hands-on experience is stressed, however, this is enriched with in-depth classroom instruction concerning theory of operation, service procedures, special tools, and troubleshooting. All classes emphasize critical thinking.

The program boasts state-of-the art equipment and resources designed to offer students on-the-job training to prepare them for employment in this fast-paced industry. A Diesel Sustainability Grant has been issued to the college to expand and improve the facilities for the Diesel Technology Program.
