The Diesel Technology program is designed to teach the student repair and maintenance in the areas of trucks/trailers, construction equipment, and agriculture equipment. The Diesel Technology program has a rich history and a tradition of excellence. We train you on trucks/trailers, agriculture, and construction equipment that is “in-service” to make it “real.” The latest technology is incorporated into curriculum and training. Students work in modern shop areas using their own tools, supervised by instructors with real-life experiences in the diesel field. The program instructs students in theory, industry standards, technical skills (lab work), safety, and required related skills. Equipment from brand names such as Cummins, Caterpillar, Detroit Diesel, Case IH, Peterbilt, Kenworth, Freightliner, John Deere, Eaton, Meritor, Terex, Komatsu and others are studied. The college has formed industry partnerships that offer student scholarships and sponsorship opportunities. Diesel technicians are employed by truck dealerships, truck fleets, owner/operators, construction contractors, farm implement dealers, heavy equipment dealerships and independent repair shops. With the increasing demand in transporting materials and products, the need for qualified techs continues to rise. There is a high demand for well-trained techs. Placement is 100% in most years and most are employed before graduation. Students should have no problem pursuing a career in this industry.
