MIAT College of Technology - Canton Reviews
Electro-Mechanical student - Program is HIGHLY overpriced for the type of instruction offered. Most of the instructors do a poor job of actually lecturing and teaching students new material. Majority of the classes offered in this program include ridiculous amounts of book work rather than hands on training, which was promised during the tour. The school is so desperate for qualified instructors in a few programs they will hire students who have no experience in the field and have not completed their respected program as instructors. The school is only concerned with your money and not giving you a quality education that is promised. You mine as well look to get an apprenticeship or entry level job in this field and save your money. To say the least, you're mostly giving them your money to teach yourself.
So far, I've been in this school for almost 3 months now, and it's been really steady so far, the courses are not really difficult, it only gets hard when you start to slack off, and just keeping up with attendance. Other than that, this school is great with the amount of time I have been here. The down side about this school is the instructors. There are instructors that can be uptight and strict, which can affect those that has work after school and doesn't really have time to do much work provided by the instructor, but there are also instructors that are more laid back and understanding and lets us go at our own pace. Also, many things that we learn can be self taught with materials provided to us and the resources around us.
The school is very career-oriented. No matter what path you choose the school is very no-frills everything you need to know nothing you don't. The professors are experienced and care about their students. Classes are small so professors are able to get to know each student personally and provide extra tutoring when needed. MIAT is a great technical school for hands-on career-driven students. Safety comes first with any class and is practiced regularly.
