Why Study Diesel/Heavy Equipment at CSN?
Graduates can pursue careers as diesel technicians with mass transit motor pools, construction companies or with any company that uses/services heavy equipment or recreation vehicles.
This program prepares students to enter the workforce as technicians to maintain, diagnose, and repair heavy equipment. The program focuses both on over the road trucks as well as diesel powered heavy equipment typically used in the construction industry.
In this program, students will learn diesel engine and propulsion systems, fuel management systems, related accessory components, as well as hydraulics and HVAC. All students will be prepared to take ASE certification exams at the completion of the appropriate course.
