The Michigan Advanced Technician Training (MAT²) program combines classroom instruction with paid work experience in a three-year, no-cost program in the field of mechatronics. Accepted MAT² students will earn an associate’s degree at one of two community colleges — Henry Ford Community College or Oakland Community College — while they earn a paycheck and gain on the job experience with a participating company. Tuition is paid by the employer and in exchange, the student commits to remaining on the job for at least two years after successful completion of the program. .
