The Diesel Technology Associate of Applied Science degree offers a number of career options by providing students the opportunity to earn an associate’s degree. Most of our students go directly into the workforce as technicians while some go on to start their own business. A background in auto and diesel technology can be a valuable asset in a number of careers; service technician, diesel parts counter tech, custom service/diagnostics, and fleet service maintenance. The Auto/Diesel technology program consists of 60 hours of coursework and commonly takes four semesters to complete when taken during the day. The range of study varies from shop safety to failure analysis.
