MIAT College of Technology Partners with Delta Airlines

Partnership established to ensure that future Aviation Maintenance Technician positions are filled


We are excited to announce that MIAT College of Technology (MIAT) has been selected to partner with Delta Airlines to help meet the high demand for Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) positions expected over the next several years.* Delta TechOps evaluated numerous AMT schools with a goal to find schools that are committed to meeting FAA standards and Delta’s principles of excellence.

MIAT College of Technology is one of a small group of AMT schools chosen from across the country to partner with Delta Airlines. Delta will function as a significant resource for MIAT, helping to continually improve the quality and relevance of the school’s training programs, increasing access to career opportunities for students and graduates, and improving marketing efforts to prospective students.

MIAT’s Canton Campus President Jennifer Paugh stated, “For nearly 50 years, MIAT College of Technology has been training tomorrow’s leaders in the aviation maintenance field and we are absolutely thrilled to be selected by Delta to partner as an employee training facility. I’m certain that this collaboration will prove to be mutually advantageous as we combine MIAT’s proven, practical training models in career technical education with Delta’s stature as a global industry leader, and their employees real-world experience. I’m certain that this partnership will prove to be of great mutual benefit to both our students and Delta employees.”

Accepting the honor and responsibility that come with this partnership, MIAT will continue to uphold the standards and practices that allowed the college to be chosen for Delta’s plan to address the growing need for trained aviation maintenance technicians.
