The Diesel/Heavy Duty Technology program provides training in a variety of diesel powered vehicles, engines, and power systems. Students explore the 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. After demonstrating foundational knowledge, students begin working with the latest advances in the trucking industry in engine design, micro-processing, air conditioning, and transmissions.
