Cummins Boosts Student Support Through Additional Donation

The Daily Item

— WILLIAMSPORT — Cummins Power Systems, with a local branch that employs five Pennsylvania College of Technology graduates, has donated a 12-liter ISX industrial engine to the institution’s diesel program.

The newer-model engine was recently delivered to the college’s Schneebeli Earth Science Center near Allenwood by Cummins Power Systems, which has an office on Lycoming Creek Road.

The manufacturer is at the forefront of compliance with tighter emission regulations across the globe and is a leading provider of diesel engines to industries that include transportation and oil and gas. The machinery will be used by first-year diesel majors in the college’s School of Transportation & Natural Resources Technologies.

This was the second such equipment donation to the diesel program in recent months; Cummins Inc. delivered a 15-liter ISX engine in late April. The mutually beneficial relationship also involves faculty training and Cummins’ representation on the college’s Diesel Technology Advisory Committee.

The school offers associate degrees in diesel technology and on-site power generation, as well as a diesel technician certificate. For more information, visit or call (570) 327-4516.
