Regional Campus Partnerships
Madison College's regional campuses are thriving education centers deeply integrated with their surrounding communities. Partnerships between MATC and local businesses benefit students and the community.

Students studying wind and renewable energy get practical experience using the 155-foot-high, 100-kilowatt wind turbine at the Fort Atkinson campus. These turbines provide energy for 80% of the campus's electrical needs, saving at least $15,000 per year.
Welding and machine fabrication students at Fort Atkinson also work with local businesses. Nursing students gain skills in a health simulation center before joining nursing staff at area hospitals and clinics.
The Portage campus partners with the City of Portage at the Portage Enterprise Center (PEC). The City of Portage provides space and entrepreneurial help to technology-focused start-up businesses. Madison College students are also trained in advanced manufacturing, gaining hands-on experience to prepare for jobs in the area.
Reedsburg students created a 3,500-square-foot "hoop house" – a rounded greenhouse where continuing education students learn about growing food and flowers.
Reedsburg is renowned for its nursing programs too. Many nursing and nursing assistant (CNA) students work for local health care organizations.
About half of the students at Madison College's Watertown campus are in career-focused or continuing education classes. Many also work in health care, business and renewable energy while going to school. Our hospital simulation and manufacturing labs provide solid job training to these motivated students.
