Set to break ground this month, Ranken Wentzville will host a groundbreaking ceremony on September 2, 2014 at 10 a.m. for the construction of a two-story building
designed to house a new Diesel Technology program and to accommodate for increased enrollment. The new building will boast 35,000 sq. feet of garage space, a modern student lounge and multipurpose educational centers.

Originally, the Diesel Technology program was set to begin at Ranken Wentzville when it opened in the spring of 2013. However, an overwhelming interest in the Automotive Maintenance Technology program and the need for a large amount of space for state-of-the-art Advanced Manufacturing equipment left little room for the Diesel Technology program. Along with booming enrollment in all of Ranken Wentzville’s programs and the addition of evening programs for the Information Technology and Automotive Maintenance Technology programs, the need to expand became apparent.
