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.
