Agricultural Mechanics A.O.S. Program Summary:
It is a two-year program consisting almost entirely of courses in mechanics and agriculture. The curriculum is best suited to students who intend to find immediate employment in their field or return to the home farm. The student must choose to minor (15 credits) in agricultural business, auto mechanics, animal science, agronomy, or horticulture. However, students who intend to continue their education by transferring to a four-year academic institution would be better prepared by following the A.A.S. degree program in Agricultural Engineering. The latter curriculum includes the liberal arts and sciences required to transfer to a four-year college.
Agriculture Mechanics Certificate Program Summary:
The program provides one year of college-level subjects in specialized farm mechanics areas. It is designed for the student who for one reason or another can only find time for one year of college study. Included are many different phases of agricultural mechanization from machinery to electricity and refrigeration.
Diesel Technology A.A.S., A.O.S., Program Summary:
The A.A.S. program was patterned after an industrial training curriculum and offers courses in agriculture, industrial and vehicular mechanics. The program provides the courses necessary to start at the technician level and move to management within a business. The curriculum is designed to prepare students who may consider additional course work after completing their two-year degree.
The A.O.S. program also consists of courses in agriculture, industrial and vehicular mechanics. The curriculum is best suited for those students who wish to find immediate employment after graduation. The student takes a variety of courses to gain a broad background in the state-of-the-art of technology.
