Degrees and Programs
The Mechanized Agriculture concentration prepares you to maintain machinery and equipment for agricultural use. You will receive training to repair and maintain all types of agricultural equipment, and includes farm welding, engine repair and tune-ups, and the proper calibration of planting, irrigation, harvesting equipment, and precision farming (GPS/GIS).
As in all Northeast agricultural concentrations, courses in business management, agricultural records, marketing, and the use of computers are included in the program of study.
We also have an established summer internship program that will provide you with on-the-job training. This is a great way to network with future employers.
You'll have the know-how and experience to maintain your own farm equipment or for employment in dealerships in machinery set-up and calibration. You'll also have the skills for a career in parts management or machinery sales.
Salaries vary depending on chosen occupation and location.
