The Diesel Mechanic Program is proud to announce the addition of a new Taylor diesel engine dynamometer test center. This new engine test center was purchased with grant monies from the Alexandria Technical & Community College. The addition of the Taylor diesel engine dynamometer and data acquisition equipment along with our existing Go-Power gasoline dynamometer will allow the Alexandria Diesel Program to test gasoline and diesel engines up to 800 HP. This test center will train the student in current factory test procedures and troubleshooting techniques.
Internship and work experience opportunities are available to students that are sponsored by the industry partnership. These paid internships and work experiences expose the student to current industry equipment and industry environment. Qualifying internships are 6 weeks in length. Paid industry work experiences during the summer break range up to 11 weeks in length. This gives the qualifying students the opportunity to earn a summer income and receive valuable industry experience that could lead into full-time employment upon graduation.
