For those who want to take their career to another level, this program offers students who have graduated from any corporate-affiliated (e.g., John Deere, Caterpillar, etc.) or generic diesel and heavy equipment service technician program the opportunity to extend their education and training at Pittsburg State University's College of Technology in Pittsburg, Kansas.
In fact, all associate degree graduates (with a minimum of 3.0 GPA) can automatically transfer up to 64 college credits to Pittsburg State. Graduates receive a Bachelor of Applied Science (Diesel & Heavy Equipment Service) by taking an additional 60 hours from PSU, in as little as two years.
Like the two-year technician programs, this bachelor degree gives you complete, hands-on training for a real-world job. But in addition, this four-year program gives you engineering technology, theory, logic, leadership and business skills to broaden your knowledge, better prepare you for management opportunities, and make you a more versatile employee. You'll also have access to on-campus housing, as well as scholarship and internship opportunities.
