The John Deere Agricultural Tech curriculum follows the general Agricultural Technology curriculum standards except that the material is concentrated on the needs of John Deere construction equipment dealers. The program is designed to be a two-year Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree. John Deere dealers from NC, SC, and VA sponsor students. Wake Tech is one of 16 community colleges that provide instruction on John Deere agricultural equipment.
The Agricultural Tech program provides unique opportunities for both the student and the dealer sponsor.
