About
Madison Area Technical College, located in Madison, Wisconsin, was founded in 1912, when it was a vocational school dedicated to providing training to high school dropouts. What became apparent the next few years was that adults were more interested in the course offerings than the young students, and as a result the school changed focus to adults while still providing opportunities to former high school students. Over the next few decades the school grew, particularly during World War II, where the school received federal funding to assist in the educational needs necessary to fill wartime jobs. By the 1970's the school was combined with others in Madison as part of a state based program to consolidate schools, as a result the school was given multiple campuses to educated residents of the capital. The school is constantly updating its facilities and program offerings to meet the needs of the community, adding new programs as necessary to remain relevant and modern.

Transfer programs allow students to complete the freshman and sophomore years of a four year education at a low cost, then transfer to a four year institution to complete one's bachelor's degree.
