Preparing you with the skills to succeed.
Northeastern’s auto and diesel program meets ASE and NATEF standards. Students are trained to be employed in entry level positions—and the demand for these new technicians is huge. You’ll step into this program and immediately begin learning about engine maintenance and repair, brakes, hydraulics, electrical diagnostics, preventive maintenance, steering and suspension. What’s best of all is that you’ll get to do live work. The diesel tech shop is well equipped with tools and is constantly being updated to make sure students have what they need in order to learn.
Logan County, and Northeastern Colorado are hosts to one of the fastest growing fields of renewable energy - utility scale wind energy. NJC's Wind Tech Program offers a strong foundation in the electro-mechanical skills necessary to successfully enter this fast growing, exciting field.
Programs of Study
Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.)
The Associate of Applied Science degree is rarely pursued by a student who intends to transfer to a 4-year school. It is primarily a degree that prepares a student to go directly into the workforce. It is typically a specific technical career that the student who seeks the AAS is seeking. Again, the general education requirements are less rigid with the AAS degree.
Certificates are 1-year technical programs that require no general education courses. Auto Tech, Agri-business, and Cosmetology are Certificate programs. English, math, science, etc. are not required to complete a certificate, although some students choose to take preparatory classes that might help them succeed in the program.
