Penn College News


For 25 years, a vintage Mack road tractor – appropriately nicknamed “Accelerated Learning" – has served as a rolling lab that continually reflects the latest industry technology available to diesel students at the Schneebeli Earth Science Center. And while there have been periods of highs and lows in enthusiasm during that quarter-century of transforming the vehicle into a drag truck, 目前的兴奋和活跃程度已经超出了图表.



More than two dozen employers were at the Schneebeli Earth Science Center from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Wednesday for another in Career Services' series of program-specific Recruitment Days. 清晨的寒意在温暖的阳光下渐渐消散, 在关于全职的富有成效的对话中,这一天变得热烈起来, 为柴油专业学生提供兼职和实习机会, 重型设备及发电专业.



Diesel students from Brad R. Conklin's Basic Electricity and Heavy Duty Brake Systems courses went to Isuzu Commercial Truck of America Inc. in Pittston on Thursday to observe a mock technician competition. 由美国顶尖的五十铃技术人员组成, the team will travel to Japan next month to compete against entries from 33 other countries to determine the best Isuzu technician team in the world.
