TV Student Operations Program Banner

Milwaukee Area Technical College students enrolled in the Television and Video Production program have the opportunity to learn and work in the studios of Milwaukee PBS, a national leader in high-definition production and programming.

Students acquire industry-standard skills for broadcast TV, cable, and corporate or commercial video. This is one of the few programs in the entire country, in which students gain direct, hands-on experience with HDTV production and broadcasting.

One day each year students "take over" Channel 36 and Milwaukee PBS viewers get a chance to see examples of their work.
