The Steelworker for the Future® maintenance technician degree program empowers you in two ways: It pays you to earn a degree, and it makes you employable upon graduation.
What’s required to apply?
To be considered, you must have a high school diploma (or equivalent). You’ll also need to pass a college entrance exam and drug screen. You must be enrolled at one of our participating colleges to participate in the program.
What happens during the program?
The 2½-year degree program includes four semesters of classroom training at a participating school where you will earn credits towards an associate’s degree in applied sciences. There is also the opportunity for up to 16 weeks of on-site training at ArcelorMittal. During the on-site portion of the program, you’ll apply what you learn in class and earn credit toward your degree. You’ll also encounter mentoring opportunities – not to mention earning enough in wages to pay for your tuition.
What’s in it for me?
As a graduate of the Steelworker for the Future® program, you’ll receive an associate of applied science degree as either a mechanical or an electrical technician.

By the third year of employment, you could join the average graduate earning $90,000 annually.
