Career Opportunities

Mechanized Agriculture

A recent University of California survey on employment opportunities in agriculture categorized the Mechanized Agriculture field as offering "one of the highest potential labor demands for new employees".

Employment opportunities are excellent and range from farm equipment sales to equipment repair and other careers in related fields such as the trucking industry and compact power equipment.

Diesel equipment is an important part of the farm and industrial sectors of the national, state, and local economy. Persons skilled in the repair, maintenance, and operation of diesel equipment may secure a variety of jobs.

With the evolution of highly sophisticated farm machinery, the technical level of upcoming technicians in the areas of electrical and hydraulic diagnosis and repair is essential. The curriculum within the Mechanized Agriculture Program is designed to meet this need.

The following lists a few employment possibilities:

  • Heavy Equipment Technician
  • Agriculture Equipment Technician
  • Farm & Power Equipment Technician
  • Hydraulic Technician
  • Heavy Duty Electrical Technician
  • Diesel Equipment Technician
