The Advanced Engine Technology Program is designed to prepare the graduate for a career in the operation,
repair, and maintenance of diesel/multi-fuel, and industrial and consumer-use engines and equipment.
Industrial engines provide power for transportation equipment such as heavy trucks, buses, and locomotives.
They are also used in all types of farming and harvesting equipment. Heavy equipment and stationary
engines for pumps and compressors use diesel/multi-fuel engines also.
To effectively repair an engine, the mechanic must isolate the cause of the problem, repair or replace defective
parts, and make adjustments that affect engine life, performance, and emissions.
Objectives of the Advanced Engine Technology program include opportunities to learn the design and construction
of industrial engines, experiences in their disassembly and repair, tune-up, troubleshooting computer, electrical,
electronic, hydraulic problems, and preventative maintenance.
The Associate of Applied Science degree will be awarded to students successfully completing the two-year course of
study. The Certificate of Completion in Advanced Engine -- Diesel will be awarded to students successfully
completing the one-year course of study. Job placement assistance is available through the Institute Placement
Lamar Institute of Technology also requires students to register for the College Success Skills Course in their first semester.
The course is designed to provide students with a thorough orientation to the campus, postsecondary education, and the classroom skills necessary for success.
Students with a thorough orientation to the campus, postsecondary education, and the classroom skills necessary for success. Students must earn a 'C' or better in all cources in the degree plan.
