The NDSCS Diesel Technology – Komatsu program is an Associate of Applied Science degree (A.A.S.) that is designed to develop technically competent, professional service technicians. Students receive state-of-the-art technical training on Komatsu construction equipment and related products through a combination of classroom instruction, hands-on laboratory instruction, and cooperative education work experience at a General Equipment & Supplies location. The Komatsu program is five semesters or approximately 20 months to complete. The five semesters are divided into 9 terms, each approximately eight weeks in length. Students complete the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th terms on campus. They complete the 4th, 6th and 8th terms at a sponsoring Komatsu dealership as student interns.

Classroom and laboratory instruction at NDSCS covers the basics of each subject plus the latest developments in Komatsu equipment. Internships at the dealership are structured to relate to the most recent classroom subjects covered at NDSCS and includes projects to improve the student’s skill level. 

Program Incentive

As a company, we are in constant need of educated, hard-working diesel techs to join our teams. We find great value in this program and the students going through it. For this reason, we cover the costs associated with tuition, fees, and supplies. Through scholarships, we reimburse up to 100% of the costs.

General Equipment & Supplies will not cover program tools; all tools are the responsibility of the student. Students must provide the program coordinator a copy of their transcript after each semester. Uniforms and other expenses are covered at our discretion.

Repayment will be paid after program completion directly to the student. Payments directly to students will be subject to all applicable taxes. Repayment monies will be paid over a 36-month time period.
