Diesel Technology

Industry Description

Diesel service technicians and mechanics, also known as bus and truck mechanics and diesel engine specialists, repair and maintain the diesel engines that power transportation equipment such as heavy trucks, buses, bulldozers, cranes, road graders, farm tractors, and combines. Diesel maintenance is becoming increasingly complex, as more electronic components are used to control the operation of an engine. Technicians who work for organizations that maintain their own vehicles spend most of their time doing preventive maintenance to ensure that equipment will operate safely.
