WISCONSIN RAPIDS — Responding to the ever-changing needs of the job market, Mid-State Technical College is offering five new degree programs in the fall: agribusiness and science technology; business analyst; emergency services management; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning; and IT computer support specialist. The additions came about as a result of Mid-State’s ongoing efforts to determine current workforce needs and develop programs tailored to meet them.
According to Sandy Kiddoo, Mid-State’s vice president of academics, the new programs are the latest in Mid-State’s over 50 offerings designed with input from local employers who serve on the college’s program advisory boards.
“By including representatives from area businesses, we are able to consistently produce graduates who have the specific skills these employers are asking for in these high-demand careers,” Kiddoo said.
Mid-State’s fall semester starts Aug. 24, and applications are being accepted now. For more information about the new programs, visit mstc.edu/programs or call 888-575-MSTC and ask to speak with a new student specialist.
