The diesel engine keeps our country running. It is the workhorse powering the nation's trucks, buses, ships, and locomotives. Diesel engines deliver more power and more durability than their gasoline-burning counterparts. If you like working with your hands and your brain, and have what it takes to keep our country's infrastructure running, then a career as a diesel technician is right for you.
The Diesel Technician Program at LBWCC prepares graduates to apply technical knowledge and skills to repairs, service, and maintenance of diesel engines in vehicles such as automobiles, buses, ships, trucks, and railroad locomotives, as well as stationary engines in generators and related equipment. The program offers a variety of degree and certificate options to meet students' needs.
