John Deere Partnership
John Deere - Vincennes University Partnership
VU is one of sixteen colleges in the country with an exclusive John Deere partnership. John Deere furnishes the latest technology for students to learn from the basics to advanced diagnostics in all areas of John Deere equipment. It is an intense hands-on lab experience and will prepare you for your future.
John Deere Sponsorship
Every TECH student must be sponsored by a John Deere dealership as part of the TECH program. TECH students also work at their sponsoring dealerships as part of the curriculum. And get paid for it. This is where all your time in class — learning customer service as well as hydraulics — comes together. At a dealership, TECH students learn from seasoned service technicians and deal with real people, customers who need their equipment fixed right. And fixed right now.
Your time at a dealership is intense. You'll put all you know about John Deere diesel engines, powertrains, electronics, and diagnostics to work. You’ll learn you really can fix a machine with a laptop instead of a wrench. And you'll discover how your skills affect everyone you come into contact with, from customers to coworkers. It's this real-life experience that puts John Deere TECH graduates in demand. Not only are you learning about working in a dealership, but dealerships are learning about working with you.
