Agricultural Mechanics involves maintaining and operating the large equipment used in today's modern farms.
Farming, also known as agriculture, is one of the largest sectors in the U.S. economy. This program is available at several Massachusetts Agricultural schools, offering students hands-on experience with a variety of farm equipment. Students learn about industry safety standards and develop transferable skills such as troubleshooting, collaboration and project management.
Some schools offer State-Approved (Chapter-74) programs in Agricultural Mechanics.These programs provide all of the training required to begin entry-level work in the field. Other schools may offer a more condensed version of this training, which has been designed at the local level. This is known as Non-Chapter 74 or "Perkins-Only." Learn more about the difference between State-Approved and Local CTE programs.
