NCTC we strive to continue providing students with opportunities to obtain the knowledge and skills needed to compete in today's Agricultural industry and a great foundation for those who aspire to transfer to a senior university. Innovation, globalization, critical thinking, diversity, leadership, problem solving, hand-on experience; these are key words in describing what we offer our students at North Central Texas College.
Agricultural professionals, of today and tomorrow, are farmers, engineers, educators, scientists, managers, communicators, market and sales representatives, and diversified production specialists. Each of these careers requires extensive education in mathematics, science,
oral and written communication, and leadership skills. As U.S. agriculture continues its expansion into the global economy it is also
important to embrace diversification while developing an understanding of other cultures and customs. Approximately 23 million Americans, or 1 out of every 6 workers, are currently employed in the agricultural and food system. Careers in this industry are important and rewarding because the
products of agriculture are either essential to life or contribute to significantly to improving our quality of life.
