OSU Institute of Technology has the only Aggreko SelecTech program in the country that trains students to diagnose, service and maintain equipment serviced by Aggreko using recommended procedures, special tools and service information.

During the two-year SelecTech program, students spend half the time at OSUIT for their technical and academic education. The remaining time is spent gaining on-the-job experience at Aggreko Service Centers through internships.

Aggreko has the world’s largest fleet of rental generators, chillers, cooling towers, heaters, dehumidifiers and air handlers used in a number of industries including manufacturing; shipping and ship-building; utilities; events; entertainment and movies; petrochemical; oil and gas exploration and mining; military; disaster relief and service; construction; and telecommunications.

In fact, for the past 20 years Aggreko has provided power and temperature control for major events such as the summer and winter Olympics, the PGA U.S. Open and Ryder Cup, and the movie sets of “Titanic” and the “Harry Potter” series.

It’s essential for the success of the program that the students’ education and training at OSU Institute of Technology align with the standards and skills of Aggreko PLC. Graduates with an Associate in Applied Science degree with a major in Diesel & Heavy Equipment who complete the Aggreko SelecTech Program are in a position to advance after additional experience and understand new systems and components.
