Program Overview

Formerly Diesel and Related Technology

If you live in the United States, almost every single thing you eat, wear or use has been transported by diesel powered vehicles and alternative/green power plants.
New EPA/CARB regulations have impacted the fuel technology and energy source/design used. Trucks, trains, buses and many other medium and heavy duty vehicles have evolved to match today’s more stringent clean air emission standards. Graduates of the Diesel Technology program are well paid and have a diverse choice of areas in which to specialize. In recent years, the demand from local employers has exceeded our supply of qualified graduates as the program continues to grow.

After successful completion of the program requirements, students will become proficient in all aspects of diesel engine fundamentals, electrical components, fuel systems, overhaul procedures, air brake system and the construction and operation of diesel engines.
