SUNY Cobleskill Leadership Reaffirms Partnership at John Deere Headquarters

SUNY Cobleskill President Marion Terenzio and College leadership are at John Deere World Headquarters in Moline, Illinois this week reaffirming the College’s educational partnership with the company.

SUNY Cobleskill is one of just 16 colleges across the country to offer a John Deere Tech Program, a two-year specialized degree option under the College’s Agricultural Power Machinery A.A.S. degree that leads to a career with John Deere supporting farmers and their equipment. Working hand-in-hand with the company, the program prepares highly skilled technicians and mechanics to service proprietary John Deere systems including high-tech computer diagnostics, electronics, sophisticated AMS precision farming technology, diesel engines, powertrains, hydraulics and more.

This partnership is yet another example of SUNY Cobleskill’s applied learning approach. Each student in the program is required to complete a paid internship at a sponsoring John Deere dealership, gaining invaluable hands-on experience in the field while learning the latest technology on campus — and getting a head start on a career after graduation.
