Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Areas of Study (A-Z)

The Diesel Technology program provides an opportunity for students to learn techniques and develop skills necessary for them to acquire a job or to advance in a job as a diesel/ heavy equipment technician or a related field. This program is intended to give students basic knowledge with actual hand-on activities. Helping students understand how to apply theory to an actual on-the-job situation and helping them gain the confidence to take on larger and more complex tasks and be successful are important to the mission of the Diesel Technology program. The program also strives to partner with the community to meet the needs of local business and industry. Specialized training is developed on request and as time permits, in order to help employees improve their skills.

Students that are seeking a Diesel Technology degree will first need to complete a certificate of their choosing (Diesel-Medium/ Heavy Truck, or Diesel/ Heavy Equipment). The student will need to meet with their advisor within the first week of school to ensure that appropriate classes have been selected.

Upon completing either certificate, the student will have satisfied the elective requirements for the diesel degree and will be ready to move on to the third semester courses.
