Agricultural Equipment Maintenance & Technology (formerly known as Technical Applications in Agriculture) is an ag equipment maintenance and tech course designed to provide students with the skill needed to enter the agricultural technician career field. Throughout the course, students develop technological competencies through rigorous hands-on experiences in the classroom.
In Agricultural Equipment Maintenance & Technology, students will learn how electrical, fluid, diesel, precision, and mechanical systems function. Then they will use their mechanical skills to identify and communicate the cause and correction of equipment failures. The course will expose students to the newest agricultural technologies that support equipment industries while connecting them with future employers.
Agricultural Equipment Maintenance & Technology areas of study include:
Development of the CASE Agricultural Equipment Maintenance & Technology course was made possible by a 3-year National Science Foundation grant and has been led by CASE and AgCentric at Central Lakes College, along with Northland Community and Technical College, Ridgewater College, and other industry partners.
