Course Planning

Courses in this program may be taken in any order. You are welcome to begin taking any of the Diesel courses offered each fall, winter, and spring term. The Course Planning Guide will show you which classes will be offered each terms. The diesel program does NOT offer any courses during the summer term.

Note: Most diesel courses are offered as a two modular sequence. Example: DS 103 Fuel Injection Systems 6cr. and DS 203 Fuel Inject. Syst. Diagnostics 6cr. Students should register for BOTH modules, as the 1XX session runs the first half of the term and the 2XX session runs the second half of the term. The only exception to this is the DS 101 Engine Rebuild class which is a 12 cr. class in itself, and runs the entire length of the term. See the current term schedule for details.
