Diesel/Heavy Duty Technology program

The Diesel/Heavy Duty Technology program provides training in a variety of diesel powered vehicles, engines and power systems. Students learn theory of operation and preventive maintenance of diesel systems and progress to actual hands-on work in the maintenance and repair of transmissions, differentials, brakes, steering and suspension, wheel alignment, hydraulics and engine rebuilding. Through the Volvo/Mack partnership, students are introduced to the latest advances in the trucking industry and can work with engine design, micro-processing, air conditioning, and transmissions. (Students are selected by the instructor and can only be admitted into the class if seating is available.)
