Millennium Information Technology
Education and Careers (MITEC):
Bridging the Digital Divide
MITEC is part of a broad strategy developed at UWM to help economically
disadvantaged high school students gain the technical skills they need
to compete in an increasingly wired world. This initiative offers comprehensive
information technology training along with life and career skills education.
Students get hands-on experience with frequently used software and also
have a chance learn more advanced computer skills. Partners in this
effort are the Milwaukee Public Schools, Milwaukee Area Technical College,
Private Industry Council of Milwaukee and Manpower International.
