Diesel Powered Equipment Technology Program Description

The Diesel Powered Equipment Technology (DPET) program is a two-year program that trains you to service, repair, and diagnose diesel powered equipment like agricultural machinery, tractors, on-highway trucks, bulldozers, road graders, combines, loaders, and more.

This program combines classroom learning with hands-on experience. The lab is equipped with the latest electronic test equipment to help you diagnose problems. You'll work with electronic diagnostic tools, bore gauges, flow meters, calipers, dial indicators, laptop computers, engine dynamometers, digital multimeters, micrometers, pressure analyzers, power wrenches, hand tools, and other specialized equipment. You'll serve two paid internships during your sophomore year working at a dealership that services diesel powered equipment. Upon completion of this program, you'll be ready to enter the workforce or continue your education by transferring to a four-year college or university.
