This year marks the MIC’s 40th anniversary as an established, training institute producing skilled and industry-ready workers. We have become a strongly-positioned organisation for national skills training and development as a whole.
Our institution plays a pivotal role as a catalyst for developing new technologies and innovation that drives national competitiveness in the industrial sector in Trinidad and Tobago. It is through our quality training, innovation, manufacturing and engineering that we endeavour to close the skills gaps.
Our use of cutting-edge German technology and German-trained instructors guarantees that upon graduation, our students can competently represent MIC Institute of Technology, and by extension Trinidad and Tobago, in any organisation, in any part of the world.
Potential employers are encouraged by the fact that our students gain practical experience by working on-site. Just remember, an MIC qualification can certainly get you in any organisation, but it is your attitude that keeps you there. Employers have high expectations of MIC graduates, and they look for well-rounded, punctual, trustworthy and respectful team players with the right work ethic…and this is all part of the MIC training.
All MIC Institute of Technology programmes are created to prepare students for the world of work through the ‘Work and Learn’ model learning, which gives them the advantage of real, on-site job experience.
