Why Choose Heavy Equipment Service Engineering Technology (HSET)?
HSET provides the skills and knowledge required to test, diagnose, service and repair multiple, interfacing and technically sophisticated systems used on equipment in the agricultural, construction, forestry, stationary power, and trucking industries. Mechanical, electrical, electronic and hydraulic technology are addressed, along with failure analysis, troubleshooting procedures, and techniques, metrology, product design for manufacturing and fleet management.
Increased use of heavy equipment in the agriculture, trucking, construction, and auxiliary power industries has created a widespread need for qualified heavy equipment technicians. Estimates suggest less than half of the current demand for technicians in this industry is being met, so skilled graduates are already in high demand.
Employment opportunities exist throughout the various heavy equipment industries. Job titles include diagnostic technician, technician, service engineer, field engineer, service manager, shop foreman, trainer, engineering technician, and maintenance team leader.
