Diesel Technology Training
In the heart of all things motorsports, the Indianapolis campus blends tradition with pure adrenaline. The campus has served the state of Indiana, and students from across the country, since 1961 – and we’re just 20 minutes from the home of the Indy 500. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is the center of the racing world, and at any given race you’ll find diesel-powered trucks and equipment driving race cars to and from the track, maintaining the raceway, performing road repairs and more. Our Indianapolis diesel mechanic school puts you at the center of it all.
On campus, students have the chance to work on real-world diesel engines and the big rig machines they power. Students perform tune-ups, align wheels using computerized equipment, and service diesel fuel systems like Common Rail, Cummins and more.
Lincoln Tech’s diesel mechanic school is at the heart of a prime location for anyone looking to get into the diesel industry. Combined, Indiana, Illinois and Ohio are projected to add over 19,000 positions in the field over the next 10 years, and are three of the country’s top 12 states for growth in the field.* And it’s not just trucks - at this diesel mechanic school, you’ll also prepare to work on tractors, hydraulic systems, power generators, construction equipment and more.
