Take the wheel in maintaining some of the most powerful diesel-powered vehicles on the planet! Our Diesel Technology – Truck program provides you with the critical thinking skills and practical experience to work with semi trucks and heavy equipment that are shipping goods and shaping construction sites all over the country.
New technicians in this field are in high demand, and our hands-on curriculum will ensure you’ll spend plenty of time under the hood so that you succeed in the trucking service industry. In addition to traditional diesel-powered vehicles, you’ll also learn about hybrid powertrain systems, compressed natural gas engines and “green” diesel engines.
And when we say these careers are in high demand, we mean it. CIT Trucks, Clarke Power Services, Freightliner, Hogan, MoDot, Penske, and Summit Truck Group are just some of the companies that have recently hired our graduates.
We believe time-on-task has to be part of your education. That means time spent learning from experienced instructors in real-world environments and real-world situations. That’s why the State Tech campus is home to more than 50 labs, an automotive bay, aviation hangar, and 40+ acres of land dedicated to our heavy equipment operations program.
