Anticipation is building for the opening of the new Raj Kahlon Agricultural Science and Industrial Technology Complex (AgIT) at Merced College in September.

It’s a state-of-the-art complex that will provide an innovative space for multiple disciplines including: Plant and Animal Science, Ag Business, Landscaping,  Industrial Tech, Electronics, HVAC tech, and Computing Tech.

Planning began in October of 2019 and construction started in June of 2021. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is expected on Sept. 15.

The complex was made possible by a $5 million partnership between local pistachio farmer Raj Kahlon and the Merced College Foundation. It is considered the largest gift to the college campus in its history.
