  • MTECH Program Certification in Digital Media

At MTECH, you will join an exclusive group of graduates who benefit from a commitment to excellence shared by everyone at the school. From instructors who deliver a relevant, industry-driven curriculum to academic and career counselors focused on ensuring you have the tools you need to succeed, we all share the same goal: your success as a student. 

No, but they leave able to demonstrate valuable Adobe skills. We have found that Adobe Certification is not important to employers.

We focus on projects to learn the skills needed in the industry. While the tutorials and instruction is there to learn the software, its important that students apply what they learned to projects.

Students do not do a required internship. However, while they are enrolled in Digital Media, they are part of our student run design agency, Peak Creative. Students work on various design projects for partnered companies in the area. This gives them experience working with real clients on real projects.

MTECH does provide an Adobe Creative Cloud license for all adult students. This gives students the option of having the software tools to work on projects at home, if they choose. Students will have enough time in class to complete all of their projects in the program.
