View Apprenticeship Diesel Systems Technology: AAS (CTE)  page.

Plan of Study 2020-2021

The following is a plan of requirements to complete this Associate of Applied Science degree. Each student’s experience will vary slightly, as this plan does not include transfer work, Advanced Placement (AP), or other institutions’ concurrent enrollment credits. Math and English placement will be based on the student’s appropriate placement scores. If developmental courses are required, they should be taken in the student’s first semester.

NOTE: This plan assumes the student is prepared to take the courses listed. If prerequisites are required, additional semesters may be required to complete this degree.

Meet with the Academic Program Advisor and consult DegreeWorks for specific degree requirements.

Advising Notes

  • The math prerequisite does not fulfill any of the apprenticeship hours required. Classes are to be taken in the sequence in which they are given. A student must pass each class with a C or higher grade to move on to the next level. All major DSTA course requirements must be taken to complete the apprenticeship curriculum.
  • Failure to complete the necessary course work or to register in a timely manner for each class will add one full year to the apprentice’s program.
  • It is the students’ responsibility to understand the requirements for their chosen program of study and to examine each course description for details about the prerequisite classes. It is highly recommended that each student meet with the Apprenticeship Program Advisor prior to starting this program. The Program Advisor may be reached in Academic and Career Advising.
  • *It is recommended to those students seeking the AAS degree to complete the general education requirements in the summer semesters or the year following completion of all the Apprenticeship core courses.
  • A Certificate in Diesel Systems Technology is also available. For more information about this certificate, contact the Apprenticeship Office, Taylorsville Redwood Campus, CT 274, 801-957-4066.
