NECC college graduates workforceWe’re at a pivotal moment in history. The demand for a skilled workforce throughout the region, especially in rural communities, has never been greater.

At Northeast Community College, we’re ready to deliver – in an industry that accounts for 1 out of every 2 jobs in northeast Nebraska. The Agriculture and Water Center of Excellence serves as a nexus of innovation, partnership, and success for our communities, businesses, producers, and manufacturers.

At Northeast Community College, students build upon Nebraska’s rich agricultural heritage while exploring and discovering new methods in agriculture, conservation, science, and technology to provide a globally competitive workforce and create a sustainable future. These students will take on roles as farmers and ranchers, engineers, conservationists, agronomists, animal scientists, and educators who impact and inspire others in Nebraska and beyond.
