PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
The Heavy Duty Diesel Technology—Transportation program is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed as technicians in the automotive service and heavy duty diesel transportation industries. The curriculum provides hands-on learning experience, which provides students with the opportunity to apply the basic theories of automotive and diesel transportation technology. Diagnosis and repair procedures performed on automotive and diesel equipment enables students to develop the skill levels required for placement in the automotive or heavy duty diesel technology industry (for example, servicing and maintaining diesel powered highway trucks, off-road heavy equipment, and stationary engines.) A long-sleeve work shirt, safety glasses, pants, and work boots are required dress in all AUT classes for safety reasons.

PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES
Upon successful completion of Heavy Duty Diesel Technology program, a student should be able to:
• demonstrate skills and knowledge to inspect and repair all major systems found in current heavy duty diesel equipment.
• complete accurate work orders of heavy duty diesel equipment repairs related to service history, analysis of problems and description of correct repairs.
• research applicable vehicle and service information using heavy duty equipment manuals, pertinent websites, and diagnostic equipment to identify, analyze, and to correct problems of all major heavy duty equipment systems.
