Diesel Technology teaches students the necessary skills to inspect, repair, and replace various components in diesel-powered vehicles. Students have the opportunity to work with vehicles manufactured by several well-known brands, including Cummins, Freightliner, Kenworth, Mack Trucks, Navistar, Peterbilt, and Volvo.
The course begins with instruction on shop safety and proper tool use before moving on to more advanced activities, such as performing a diesel engine tune-up or replacing a cylinder head.
The Diesel Technology Program is partnered with Cummins Sales & Service. Senior students have an opportunity to apply to the School-to-Work Pre-Apprenticeship Program with Cummins.
