METTE Programs at the Partner Colleges
As with all of Wisconsin’s technical college postsecondary programs, WTCS associate degree and diploma programs for manufacturing engineering technologist and technicians are designed to prepare students for occupations in demand in local, regional, and statewide labor markets. The specific mix of programs offered differs by college and changes annually to reflect the changing needs of employers. The four colleges participating in the METTE project offer 35 of Wisconsin’s METTE 54 degree and technical diploma programs. Annually, METTE programs at these four colleges serve more than 3,000 students or about 40% of METTE program enrollees in Wisconsin’s technical colleges.
