Forging for a Future in Steel
Today’s steel industry operates at the cutting edge of material science—transforming unique chemistry grades, utilizing thermal and mechanical fine-tuning techniques, to produce advanced steel products for automobiles, appliances, pipelines, trains, ships, construction equipment, bridges, skyscrapers, wind towers, and stadiums.
With a presence in more than 60 countries, ArcelorMittal is the world’s leading steel and mining company and leader in all major global markets, including appliances, automotive, construction, and packaging.
ArcelorMittal initiated Steelworker for the Future,® a 2.5 year associate degree program in partnership with Purdue University North Central, to prepare industrial technology students for the fascinating world of steelmaking through classroom learning and hands-on training. As a student in the Steelworker for the Future® program, you may also apply for a paid internship, gaining valuable experience while offsetting tuition costs. Upon completion of the degree program, graduates will have the opportunity to be hired as an electrical or mechanical maintenance technician.
As part of this highly skilled, tech-savvy and well-paid workforce, you will be installing, maintaining, and repairing the sophisticated equipment used to satisfy customer needs, enabling ArcelorMittal and its customers to compete now and well into the future. You will work with high tech computer equipment, maintain state of the art steel manufacturing equipment, and use classroom knowledge on troubleshooting, print reading, large equipment alignment, gearing, lubrication, hydraulic systems, motors, sensors, and control modules. These experiences offer the opportunity for a long, satisfying, and high paying career in the steel industry.
