Diesel Technology is a class for juniors and seniors interested in manufacturing and transportation.
This class teaches students everything they need to know about diesel powered transportation and heavy equipment. They are taught to work on engines, tractors, semi-trucks, pick up trucks, and power trains.
To allow students to continue the class after one year, it is broken into two levels. Although students are not required to take all the diesel classes, Intro to Diesel should be the first one students take in order to be successful.
Students in the class have found the class to be a valuable experience.
“I joined this class because I love to work on engines. As an engineer you get paid lots of money and I want to have a part in that when I graduate from college,” Gage Breuer, sophomore, said.
Level two activities are far more complex than level one because level two is based on diagnostics and repair.
All Diesel Technology classes are an entire year.
