The MIHC Apprenticeship program is simple. Each week, you’ll spend one day in class at Blue Ridge Community College (BRCC) and the other four days getting real-world, hands-on work experience at one of our partner companies. After three semesters, you’ll graduate from the program with a Mechatronics Engineering Technology Certificate and a full-time job offer.
