Pros: Great hands on experience for job preparation.Quite BrightOther
Pros: Great hands on experience for job preparation. Wonderful instructors! Lab assistants and LRC personnel are great for tutoring. The tools necessary for testing and jobs are all there. Snap-On guy there all the time to take care of tooling issues.

Cons: Director of Training is bias in his disciplinary actions. There is way too much foul language and harassment. Constant cases of bullying and destruction or theft of peoples personal property. They have allowed a social culture of bias and bullying. This is a bad social dynamic for a college. They don't know how to handle these situations very well because of management incompetence. I would not recommend anyone pay the amount of money this school asks for for the emotional wounding that happened to me and others. I will not finish school here and am in process of moving my credits to another school like AIM or Embry Riddle. I'd rather go to a place that has a fostering social environment than one that depresses students and makes us have a lack of faith in anyone above an instructor level.Advice: Just remember there are a bunch of different people out in the world, and this school does not protect you from bullying or harassment. It doesn't matter if you are male or female. I watched "nerdy" boys get picked on and girls sexually harassed on a daily basis. Protect yourself because Pipesh won't do it for you, Neal and Kamal try, but Chris the "decision maker" won't and views you like a problem. He takes retaliatory measures against you if you cause him "trouble". He says you can't teach professionalism, which is something the LRC instills in people every day, and what the instructors try to do, but he leaves his faculty high and dry in that department. Overall, if they just changed him out, and some of the useless front office people that sit and eat all the time out, they'd save money and have a better school. Get rid of the clingons! Because of how Pipesh is, is why the owner never hears about any of the problems and is left wondering why the attendance is dismal at best. Like companies that have gone under before, you need to change the culture, and that includes changing the management when they are incompetent. Your best friends aren't the ones to do business with. They're just messing you up in the end. Wake up Chuck!

Education is ALWAYS what you make of it.Quite BrightAerospace Engineering
Education is ALWAYS what you make of it. When I attended MIAT there was plenty of students who didn't try too much, they still passed, but they were carried by the ones who did try. Most of them finished only never to get their A&P License. You can pay all the money you want for schooling but in the end it's your initiative that determines your success in life. Even with a degree, certificate or diploma; nothing is handed to you. I tried to use the career services at MIAT but they didn't help me at all. I felt upset about that. But if you want things done right you have to do it yourself. So as far as them finding you a job... don't count on it. But as far as them preparing you for the A&P test, they provide you with everything you'll need. Including very amazing instructors dedicated to your success. Just be sure to stay away from the negative people. They'll just try to bring you down.

I graduated from MIAT at the top ofQuite BrightOther
I graduated from MIAT at the top of my class, and had perfect attendance for the entire program. Employment services did nothing to help me find a job. I attended the Power Technology Program and the so called training is a joke! There is no way any employer would let a graduate of this school operate a boiler in a power plant! You don't learn skills like this in a few months watching youtube videos in class (which is what you will be doing if you attend this school)! As another reviewer said, you might be qualified to sweep the floor at the power plant. MIAT was a huge mistake, go to a REAL COLLEGE and avoid this overpriced "McDonald's" school at all costs! (Advice from a 2010 grad).
