Manufacturing firms in our region compete in an increasingly-complex global economy and need personnel with strong academic and technical skills. MTA prepares students to compete in this market through a comprehensive curriculum that integrates high level academics with technical proficiencies and links these concepts to their industry applications via mentoring, competitive projects and internships.


Along with rigorous academic classes in honors chemistry, honors physics, advanced physics, honors economics, Algebra II, trigonometry/precalculus, honors calculus and English (including College Calculus I – III and differential equations), students experience industry-standard training in critical thinking and problem solving. MTA’s technical curriculum builds knowledge in design and graphical communications, electrical and mechanical, manufacturing and civil engineering, logistics, robotics and automation and project planning, and provides experience working in teams and managing a complex project. Seniors design and build a robot to compete at the National Robotics Challenge in Marion, Ohio and the Math, Engineering and Science Symposium in Traverse City. Workplace experiences for all MTA students include an assigned mentor, an internship in a local engineering or manufacturing firm, company tours, job shadowing, and industry-related projects.
