Donation Made In Response to Student Request!

RALEIGH, N.C. (March 28, 2016) - Wake Tech’s Automotive Systems Technology program trains future auto technicians in the very latest technologies – and today, the program received a very valuable donation. The Wake County New Vehicle Dealers Association donated a Duramax diesel engine and Allison transmission package that will provide important, up-to-the-minute, hands-on training for automotive students.  

“This donation is indeed very generous,” said Wake Tech President Dr. Stephen Scott, “and also very important for our students. The equipment will help us offer them the best possible training, to prepare them for high-demand careers.”    

The donation came about after Trey Hinnant, a student in the program, requested the equipment! Hinnant says the engine and transmission will offer valuable hands on training: “Now we can work on a diesel motor in class! This will help us better understand the technology.” 

Generous financial and in-kind support from the community allows Wake Tech to stretch resources and extend the reach of limited program budgets. Donations from local business and industry are invaluable sources of much-needed equipment and state-of-the art technologies that greatly enhance the education and training programs the college provides.
