Modesto Junior College


Irrigation Technology celebrates industry placements and first graduates

The Irrigation Technology Program at Modesto Junior College marked a milestone on April 28, 2017 as the first graduates participated in the Commencement Ceremony. Upon completion of the program's second year, it awarded five Associate of Science (A.S.) degrees and 14 certificates of achievement. This is not only a first for MJC, but for California as well, because MJC's program is the first A.S. degree in irrigation technology in the state. Aside from graduates, the program's greatest achievement has been the placement of the students into the irrigation workforce. Of the 20 current irrigation majors, 16 are currently employed in this industry.

Sociology students seek to make a difference through websites

MJC students enrolled in Dr. J. Douglas Penn's Sociology of Family, and Race and Ethnicity courses are given the option to be an activist by contributing to their community via research. Over the last two years, students choosing activism have developed and continue to maintain two group project websites that seek to make a positive difference on campus, in the community and beyond.
