MTEC is NHTI’s Manufacturing Technology Education Center located in Concord, New Hampshire, where we provide connections between K-12, our 4-year educational partners, industry, and our community college students to support and sustain the advanced manufacturing industry in New Hampshire. This is achieved through career exploration, college education, non- credit training, apprenticeships, internships and employment.
We work closely with the advanced manufacturing industry to ensure that our curriculum addresses their workforce development needs and our labs reflect real life working environments. By developing a membership network of industry members, our students have opportunities to meet their future employers and employers can assess their future employees!
MTEC creates defined pathways that promote and support manufacturing by guiding students through career exploration, credentialing and education, as well as training manufacturing employees who need to up-skill in rapidly changing manufacturing technologies.
Along with these pathways, MTEC also celebrates and advocates for the industry through career awareness summer camps, supporting Manufacturing Day, and hosting career fairs.
Pathway M Entry:
Our relationships with high schools and career and technical education centers are the initiation point where students begin to gain interest in the field.
Pathway T Stop:
Two-Year College Education
NHTI-Concord’s Community College provides two years of education that allow students to be competitive for advanced manufacturing employment in the areas of automation, manufacturing, and mechanical engineering.
Pathway E Stop:
Manufacturers not only employ our students once they graduate, but they offer opportunities for students to tour their facilities, provide for job shadowing and internships, and participate in project- based learning to help build our students’ portfolios. Our partners serve on our advisory board, where they help shape the academic programs and some financially support our programs, equipment and scholarship funds.
Pathway C Loop:
With a movement towards increased automation, manufacturers need to up-skill their current employees on emerging technologies. MTEC provides this assistance to manufacturers through both credit and non-credit professional development classes.
