(WAND) – Parkland College announces a new partnership with AGCO Corporation.

AGCO Corporation is a world leader in the development, production and distribution of agricultural machinery and precision agriculture technologies.

Beginning in the fall of 2024, the college will build a new $6 million learning center on campus. Construction was made possible thanks to a $5 million donation from AGCO.

A new one will be placed on the facility Service Technician in Applied Science Degree Program. It will provide students with instruction on specific AGCO equipment such as Fendt® and Massey Ferguson® and provide education in general agricultural concepts.

The program will accept students sponsored by AGCO dealers.

The two-year program will use a work-study program to alternate students between classroom and field work. Those who complete the program will receive full associate professor accreditation.

The program includes:

  • AAS Service Technician Degree
  • AGCO Equipment Technician Level 1, 2 and 3 Certification
  • Information on operation, troubleshooting and maintenance of AGCO equipment
  • Service, warranty and parts information for AGCO equipment
  • On-the-job training with AGCO dealers

Fall 2023 classes will be held in the existing agricultural buildings on campus.

The new 25,000-square-foot building will break ground in the summer of 2023.
