Diesel and heavy equipment technicians repair and maintain
transportation equipment, such as heavy trucks, buses,
locomotives, ships, and automobiles; construction equipment
such as bulldozers, cranes, and road graders; and farm
equipment such as tractors and combines.
Many technicians perform a broad range of repairs from
engines to electrical systems. Others specialize in repairs
such as fuel and starting systems. Diesel and Heavy
equipment technicians use a variety of computerized
testing equipment to pinpoint and analyze malfunctions
as well as numerous power and hand tools to perform repairs.
 
The Diesel and Heavy Equipment Technician Program is a
two-year program providing job entry skills in service and
repair of transportation, construction, industrial, and farm
equipment. In addition to providing a foundation in the
latest diesel technologies, the program improves skills
needed to interpret technical manuals and communicate with
coworkers and customers. Students in the program develop a
broad base of skills, allowing them to enter the large and
ever-expanding field of diesel and heavy equipment service
and repair.
