Truck & Diesel Technology Powered By


Well-trained diesel repair technicians are virtually always in demand, even in periods of economic slowdown. The skills acquired in this three-year program will qualify you to work in industries such as transportation, government and construction. These same skills also provide a foundation to study engineering, math and other scientific/technical fields of study at a university level.

Designed so students can transition directly into entry-level positions as technicians with area businesses, or enter higher education already armed with a wealth of knowledge and hands- on experience in the latest world-of-work methods.

Navistar is a leading producer of diesel trucks, school buses and engines and has a history of being deeply involved in the communities its facilities are located.
