Applied Technology and Manufacturing Pathway

Whether it is the technicians who keep our homes cool, the mechanics who keep our cars on the road, or the technicians that keep our factories and critical infrastructure running; we depend on professional technicians who have mastered the skills of their trade.

At Metropolitan Community College, students in the applied technology and manufacturing pathway receive practical, hands-on training from instructors with real-world experience in state of the art labs. You'll develop the skills you need for high-demand, high-paying careers in our region.
