Steelworker for the Future
The Steelworker for the Future® craft training degree program empowers you in two ways: It pays you to earn a degree, and it makes you employable upon graduation.
What's required to apply?
To be considered, you must have a high school diploma (or equivalent). You'll also need to pass a college entrance exam and drug screen. You must be enrolled at one of our participating colleges to participate in the program.
What happens during the program?
The 2½-year degree program includes four semesters of classroom training at a participating school where you will earn credits towards an associate’s degree in applied sciences. There is also the opportunity for up to 16 weeks of on-site training at ArcelorMittal. During the on-site portion of the program, you'll apply what you learn in class and earn credit toward your degree. You'll also encounter mentoring opportunities – not to mention earning enough in wages to pay for your tuition.
What's in it for me?
As a graduate of the Steelworker for the Future® program, you'll receive an associate of applied science degree as either a mechanical or an electrical technician. These positions are highly technical, high paying jobs needed in the steel industry and manufacturing in general. In fact, the average annual income of an
ArcelorMittal steelworker is approximately $90,000 per year plus benefits after
three years of employment.
