Mission Statement — "To provide a positive and technical learning environment
where students can develop the necessary skills and knowledge to become successful
in the workplace of the automotive service industry."
At the Michigan Institute of Technology, we strive to provide the best possible
automobile service training at a reasonable cost. MiIT features small class sizes to
better create a more effective learning environment with low student to instructor
ratios. We instill student confidence, creativity, teamwork dynamics and problem solving
skills to better prepare our graduates for the personal characteristics required in the
automotive repair industry. A priority in our program is a strong focus on "hands on"
training. We provide a NATEF (National Automotive Technician's Education Foundation)
curriculum that comprehensively covers the eight areas of vehicle instruction.
The areas are: BRAKES, STEERING/SUSPENSION, ENGINE REPAIR, ELECTRICAL/ELECTRONICS,
ENGINE PERFORMANCE, HEATING & AIR CONDITIONING, MANUAL DRIVE TRAINS and AUTOMATIC
TRANSMISSIONS. We integrate classroom instruction with extensive shop repair activities to enhance student training. Successful graduates will be qualified for an entry level
employment position in a dealership, independent repair facility or specialty shop.
It may be the goal of a student to eventually own his/her own business. MiIT provides
career employment placement assistance both during training and after graduation.
Our shop contains practice vehicles and all necessary repair equipment for all
curriculum topics, however, students are encouraged to bring in their own vehicles for
learning activities in the appropriate curriculum areas. Our instructors are ASE Master
certified and have extensive work experience in the repair industry.
The field of automotive service requires a degree of academic skill in order
to be successful. The technology of today's complex automotive systems require an
ability to read and comprehend technical data. MiIT offers remedial academic support
programs if needed. Ask the Student Services department if you are interested in
