Students say ...
“One thing that sets TSTC apart from other schools is that the instructors and students know each other. It isn’t like bigger colleges where there are over 100 students in one class. Also with smaller classes the students get more one on one time with the instructors when they have a problem or need something.” -Jeremy Creech

Hands-on learning

When you enter the Diesel Technology program, our instructors want to make sure you get the full experience. They make it a priority to give you tons of hands on learning experiences. They spend most of their time with you in the lab doing complete and partial rebuilds of engines. They also spend time teaching you about individual components that you’ll need to be familiar with on the job.

Advisory Committee

TSTC has placed industry professionals in the driver’s seat with you. Our Advisory Committees are determining what is taught and how it is conveyed to you so that the methods and technology TSTC incorporates are the desired, front line solutions.
