Ag Mechanization Technology - AAS

PROGRAM INFORMATION: The John Deere TECH program is designed to help prepare students for a career in the field of agriculture mechanization technology. The student will study the theory and practice required for employment with John Deere and other farm implement dealers as agriculture technicians (ag. tech) where they will repair and maintain complex mechanized farm equipment. This is a high-tech program with limited enrollment. Students are asked to make applications to the John Deere TECH Department in early spring. They must have a John Deere sponsor for whom they will work between semesters; and they must take the Accuplacer and Mechanical Reasoning Tests prior to being accepted into the program. Students successfully completing the two-year program will receive an A.A.S. Degree in Agriculture Mechanization technology or a Certificate of Completion.
