I hope this month's newsletter finds you well and that the summer is bringing you some rest and relaxation along with time with family and friends.

I am pleased to inform you that MTC faculty and staff are preparing to return to normal this fall. On-campus offerings will be at 100% capacity. That means maximum enrollment for those who want in-person, hands-on learning.

Additionally, we will continue to offer real value and real savings via virtual, hybrid and online courses for more than 150 programs in our eight schools of study. We stand ready for you to get started whether you want to come full-time, part-time, or one class at a time.

I hope you will take the time to read the results of a recent student survey about how our faculty and staff are serving the Midlands community through technical education and workforce development.

Finally, a couple of weeks ago, it was my pleasure to pose for a photo with the newest cohort to complete our Computer Numerical Control program. You can read more about CNC below.

I look forward to our return to campus next month.
President Ronald L. Rhames, '78

Why Students Choose MTC

What makes MTC the top choice for students of almost all ages in the Midlands?

Diverse programs taught by qualified instructors, revamped advising techniques, and campuses built with our students in mind. The college’s most recent student satisfaction survey responses prove it.

From 2018-2020, more than 2400 students completed surveys. They responded to questions about instruction, campus environment, process-function, and advising.

Read about the students' responses.

Computer Numerical Control (CNC)

The central mission of Midlands Technical College is to provide the state of South Carolina with a skilled workforce. A perfect example of this comes from the college's Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Operator program.

Trained professionals who like to use their hands thrive on operating mills and lathes to produce tangible products. Students can complete this program in as few as eight months and begin work in a field that has a growth projection of 16.8%.

I am proud to share that for the past two cohorts, 92% of graduates had accepted jobs BEFORE the program was complete. These are positions that provide family-sustaining compensation and benefits with an average annual salary of $42,222.
The next class of the program begins in August.

A First-Generation Success Story

Sam Angeles knows the importance of making big strides one step at a time. As a first-generation college graduate, the first big step in his journey was enrolling at Midlands Technical College.
“I saw MTC as the best choice for me both financially and because of the variety of opportunities at the college. I was able to self-support myself and prepare for where I am now.”
