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.
