Michigan Advanced Technician Training

The next application for the Michigan Technician Training (MAT2) Program is due April 30, 2015.  MAT2 combines on-the-job training with classroom work to prepare students for careers in skilled manufacturing and technology.  In particular, students are prepared to work in mechatronics, IT, technical design, and CNC manufacturing.  Students who are admitted to MAT2 are employed by a sponsoring company who agrees to cover the cost of college tuition for an associate degree.  As such, after three years, during which time students have been alternately working and studying, they will earn an associate degree paid for by their employer as well as valuable work experience.  Students are then required to work an additional two years for their sponsoring employer.  Those interested in applying for the MAT2 program are encouraged to go to MAT2 to learn more about the application process as well as participating companies and colleges.  The dates for upcoming informational webinars about MAT2 can also be found at MAT2 Events
