New PartnershipBy Sarah Hoffbeck

NDSCS just announced another new partnership agreement, this time with Case IH regional dealers to offer a two-year diesel technology program focusing on specific agricultural equipment and technology.

Through this exciting partnership, incoming students will have the chance to be sponsored by participating Case IH dealerships. Sponsorships will be customized by each dealer and could include tuition assistance, internships, branded dealer uniforms and/or reimbursement for technician toolkits.

The Diesel Technology – Case IH program will be taught at the College’s diesel technology facility in Wahpeton, N.D., beginning August 2013 and is limited to 20 students annually. Graduates will earn an Associate in Applied Science degree in Diesel Technology – Case IH.

Curriculum will include a focused study in powertrains, electrical/electronics, and Case IH-related hydraulic and farming systems.

The Case IH program is designed to develop technically competent, professional service technicians for Case IH dealerships regionally and throughout the world.
