Courses for this Program

About the Program

The Diesel Technology Associate of Applied Science degree program is designed for students seeking
a career in today’s diesel repair industry. The program builds rapidly from fundamentals and
theory into diagnosis and repair of today’s modern equipment based upon Automotive Service
Excellence (ASE) and industrial standards.

The design of the program places heavy emphasis upon actual hands-on work in diesel labs.
Approximately two-thirds of the time spent in the program is in a lab (shop) environment where
the student applies theory to diagnosis and repair of a wide variety of equipment. As students’ skill
levels develop, so does the difficulty of repairs performed.

If students intend to transfer to either SOU’s (www.sou.edu/degreecompletion) or Oregon Tech’s
(http://www.oit.edu/academics/academic-agreements/articulations) Bachelor of Applied Science
degree program, transfer courses should be chosen from the list of electives where possible. See an
advisor for more information, or visit www.sou.edu/degreecompletion.

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant
to the discipline. For a list of learning outcomes for this discipline or program, see
