Technicians with the educational background provided by this program are in high demand NOW. With the rising use of radiation in diagnostics, medical treatment
and applications, and the potential expansion of nuclear power technology, this demand will remain high for years to come. The MNT program, which is located in Mexico, Missouri, at the Advanced Technology Center (ATC), offers students a unique opportunity to obtain state-of-the-art training that will put them in demand by any organization or business that handles radioactive substances including advanced manufacturing, medical facilities, research reactors, the nuclear power industry, hazardous waste removal companies, and government agencies. Job placement prospects are highly favorable and starting salaries reflect this high demand. Students will take general education classes through Moberly Area Community College (MACC).
