Middlesex Community College is excited to be a participant in a federally-funded program to expand Health & Life Science learning and training opportunities for its students. The goal is to provide individuals with affordable options for gaining the skills and knowledge necessary to find employment in growing fields. We offer a broad variety of programs for students who are interested in patient care, computer science, environmental science, information, engineering, biotechnology and more. Some can be completed within a year of study; others prepare students for pursuit of degrees at four-year colleges. All are aligned with the needs of employers.
MxCC is offering new and revised programs in fields that are projected to grow and offer well-paying, rewarding jobs. Curriculum is designed to provide students with options including industry certifications, employment or transfer to four-year institutions. MxCC provides students with opportunity and flexibility. Courses are offered four semesters a year, with both day and night classes. New online and hybrid courses allow students to work around job and other life commitments.
