Cutting-Edge IoT and AI Classes
Created by Industry & Educational Leaders
We approach education and job training differently. Our courses are designed by world-recognized professionals and educators who are active leaders in their respective fields.
We partner with progressive and passionate educators to deliver that content, and to adapt it to local needs.
Our industry partners provide student mentoring and proactive hiring into paid internships or full-time positions.
What We Do
Microfacturing Institutes is a public benefit corporation based in Palo Alto, California. We create educational content designed by industry leaders, and are in the process of building an extensive online series of courses. We work with leading educators and license that content to be delivered by accredited schools, and help them to adapt our content to the needs of their local audience.
Our courses use on-line content for scalability and quality, coupled with expert instructors and professors for personalized learning. We create a vibrant ecosystem of instructors, industry, and Universities to continue to create new content and improve our existing coursework.
As a public benefit corporation, we work with educators who can deliver this educational experience at low cost.
We currently are operating with courses being offered in the Silicon Valley, and will begin to scale to new locations and schools later this year.
