Henry Ford College, Macomb Community College, Mott Community College and Oakland Community College are participating institutions in the Michigan Advanced Technician Training (MAT2). In the MAT2 program, students earn while they learn, alternating between classroom training at a participating community college and on-the-job training with an employer (fields of study currently include Mechatronics, Information Technology, and Technical Product Design). MAT2 provides students with:
- A three-year training program with all tuition costs paid for by an employer
- On-the-job training with pay
- An associate degree in a high-tech, in-demand field
- A guaranteed job upon successful completion of the program
