Careers

Careers:  
Diesel technology students may be hired as mechanics working on engines, automatic transmissions, drive trains, electrical systems, suspension and steering, hydraulics, and air systems.  They work on heavy equipment, farm equipment, and on-highway trucks.  Diesel mechanics diagnose, repair, weld, and fine-tune the working parts of buses, trucks, construction machinery, and generators.  Students pursing a Bachelor of Science degree in Technology management can expect opportunities as shop managers, service writers, equipment managers, fleet managers and product development.
