There is no rest for the machinery and industrial equipment found in modern industry so the industrial mechanic/millwright must diagnose problems and create solutions to keep things running smoothly.
It’s an exciting challenge that might find you milling custom parts or inventing your own tool along the way to get the job done.
Through a mix of theory and hands-on learning, students in MITT’s Industrial Mechanic/Millwright program develop a variety of machine shop skills—including operation of cut-off saws, drill presses, lathes, and milling machines—learn how to read blueprints, and use precision measuring and layout instruments.
Eligible students may participate in a three-week work practicum where they can practice their skills and get on-the-job guidance from a veteran industrial mechanic/millwright. And participation in MITT’s Bridging to Work workshops ensures every graduate transitions from classroom to career with a strong foundation in the employability and essential skills employers demand. Graduates who meet specific criteria can earn credit toward Apprenticeship Manitoba Level 1.

Work Skills Foundations
Starting in August 2022, domestic and international students enrolling in most post-secondary programs at MITT will be required to complete Work Skills Foundations.
Formerly known as Introduction to College and Work, Work Skills Foundations helps you successfully transition into a post-secondary academic environment and navigate the cultural, academic, and work expectations you find there as well as in the workplace.
Work Skills Foundations will be open for students to complete, independently and online, two weeks prior to their program start date. Please note that completion is mandatory for graduation.
Visit our Work Skills Foundations page for full information.
A four-week work practicum placement may be available to students who meet eligibility criteria, providing them the opportunity to apply their skills and get on-the-job guidance working within a local employer’s facility.
Work practicum is a mandatory component of this program. Students must meet all program eligibility criteria to qualify for practicum. MITT does not guarantee practicum placements when students do not meet eligibility criteria (including having a valid co-op work permit) or when sufficient placements are not available. In such situations, MITT will explore alternative options for program completion with a student.
Students who successfully complete the accredited program with an accumulative average of 70 per cent or better in the trade subjects and level for which the program was accredited, gain employment, and register as an apprentice within two years of graduating, will receive credit for Apprenticeship Manitoba Level 1 in-school technical training and 800 hours in the Industrial Mechanic/Millwright Apprenticeship program.
Continuous Program Improvement
MITT continuously reviews and improves programs to maintain relevance in the workplace and effective learning experiences for all students. Although the institution strives to have the website reflect the most current version of all programs, MITT reserves the right to change the program curriculum as necessary to meet industry and accreditation requirements. As a result, course information and learning outcomes may be adjusted prior to the scheduled course start date.
