Automotive Technology, Heavy Equipment: Truck and Diesel Technician

Zach Diangelo, of Nunda, has a love of all things fast, powerful, and four-wheeled.

“I really love working on cars. I love seeing how I can make them go faster and be more powerful. My dream is to work on Lamborghinis and Mercedes.”

In the automotive service technician major at Alfred State, hands-on learning is key. “You’re working on live customer vehicles and troubleshooting real problems. You’re out there figuring out what you need to do just like you would on the job. Hands-on learning and knowing the vehicles from the ground up makes a big difference.”

After graduating, Zach headed back to Alfred State for a second degree in the heavy equipment, truck and diesel technician major. “Having two degrees makes me a more competitive job applicant. The more versatile you are and the more you know, the more marketable you are.”
