The Advanced Diesel Technology program is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge required to succeed as technicians in the field of heavy-duty diesel

equipment, transportation and agriculture industries, or related industries. The curriculum provides both theoretical and hands-on learning experiences that provide students with the opportunity to apply the learned skills in a variety of different areas, such as transportation, and agriculture equipment. Diagnosis and repair procedures performed on heavy-duty diesel equipment enable students to develop the skills required for employment in the heavy duty diesel technology industry.

Upon successful completion of Heavy Duty Diesel Technology program, a student should be able to:

  • accurately complete work orders that relate to equipment/engines/motors manifesting problems, suggest corrective actions, and complete repairs
  • apply knowledge of personal and environmental safety practices to promote a safe work environment, and environmental responsibility.
  • research applicable equipment and service information using heavy-duty equipment manuals in print and electronic formats, pertinent websites, and diagnostic equipment to identify, analyze, and correct problems of all major heavy-duty equipment systems.
