ITEM 1. PROGRAM GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
Identify the goals and objectives of the program. The stated goals and objectives of the program must be consistent with the mission of the community colleges as established by the Legislature in Education Code section 66010.4. Often, colleges will include the program level Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) in this section that identify the program’s goals and objectives.
San Bernardino Valley College maintains a culture of continuous improvement and a commitment to provide high-quality education, innovative instruction, and services to a diverse community of learners. Its mission is to prepare students for transfer to four-year universities, to enter the workforce by earning applied degrees and certificates, to foster economic growth and global competitiveness through workforce development, and to improve the quality of life in the Inland Empire and beyond.
The Diesel Department mission is the same as the college mission. The college wants our diverse community of learners to succeed! SBVC provides our students a hands-on learning experience to accompany their ability to understand theory, the ability to think critically, and the capacity to apply that knowledge in a real-world setting. Our students do very well because SBVC provide our diverse student population with quality training, skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in business, industry, and their chosen professions in a multicultural society. The department has plans to increase the number of women coming into our Diesel programs by attending career day activities at area middle schools to speak to those female students and show them that women can be technicians and engineers. The department has posters, brochures, and DVD presentations that prepared to pass to many of the High Schools in the area.
Students of many ethnic groups whether it be Man or Woman young or old, may discipline themselves to achieve higher goals in life.
SBVC is the only public college in the Inland Empire/Desert Region that offers a Diesel program, despite the expanding logistic industry in the region. The diesel classes are offered morning through evening to accommodate working students’ schedules. The Heavy Duty Transportation Department offers one degree and 2 certificates at this time
1) Heavy/Medium Duty Diesel Truck Technology Associates Degree,
2) Heavy/Medium Duty Diesel Truck Technology Certificate
3) Diesel Engine and Fuel Injection Technology Certificate.
Additionally, the Diesel department maintains relations with the local Industry to stay current on trends and regional needs. One current trend is Heavy Duty Clean Vehicle Technologies. The Diesel department is developing a program in conjunction with the electronics/electricity department a curriculum that will meet the needs of the Industry and state approval. The Heavy Duty Transportation Department program goal is to cover the Heavy Duty Clean Vehicle Technologies within the Industry.
