You'll study diesel engine theory and design, engine performance, cooling systems, lubrication systems, induction exhaust and after-treatment systems, hydrostatic transmissions, charging systems, heavy-duty torque converters, power train principles, heavy-duty clutches, transport refrigeration, brake air systems, steering alignment, and so much more.
