SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Board of Education has given approval to Southeast Technical Institute to expand its diesel technology program.

Southeast Tech will accept up to 24 additional students into the expanded program beginning in fall 2016.

The Sioux Falls school will add an emphasis for students to earn an associate of applied science degree or diploma in agricultural/construction diesel technology. All diesel technology students will complete a common first-year curriculum, and the available emphases for the program’s second year are in transportation or agricultural/construction.

Curriculum will be expanded to include additional instruction and experience on critical systems such as emissions, hydraulics and electronics.

The addition is in response to high-demand service areas such as emissions after-treatment, electrohydraulics and advanced system diagnostics.
