At MTA, we believe true learning involves meaningful fieldwork, turning academic teaching to relatable practices, while providing important services to diverse communities.
Community involvement is an inseparable part of our academic courses, so that while learning the theories in the classroom, students also gain a unique opportunity to encounter real-life application, and get ready for the challenges of the work environment. For example:
At the School of Computer Science, students develop assistive technologies for people with disabilities, as part of their coursework. They learn to identify needs and translate them into technological tools, machines, games and applications for the immediate benefit of users.
At the School of Behavioral Sciences students provide therapeutic mentoring for at-risk youth, under the supervision and guidance of the faculty. Students' work provides much-needed support to the local education and welfare system, as they gain hands-on experience in therapeutic methods. The real winners are of course the youth, who show improvement in their educational achievements and emotional wellbeing.
