Two Year Associate of Applied Science Degree

The Agricultural Equipment Technology Program provides a quality learning atmosphere and directed hands on experiences designed to prepare the student to enter and thrive in the rapidly growing field of Agricultural Equipment Technology.  The majority of the classroom time will be spent learning and discussing the systems, components, operation, diagnostics, and troubleshooting.  The curriculum scope also covers calibrations to each system as required by manufacturers.  Classroom work will be supplemented with hands on experience in the lab of each system being studied.  Operational tests and component adjustments covered in the classroom discussion will be demonstrated to the students.  Each student will be required to perform the same task as they were shown, and will be evaluated on their performance of this task.  Upon successful completion of the program, students will earn an Associate of Applied Science Degree.
