Essential Information

BMW Manufacturing Co., LLC partners with several technical schools in South Carolina to offer a vocational training program that permits candidates who are working towards a degree to take part in full-time classes while simultaneously acquiring real-world experience by working part-time at a BMW facility. Three schools in South Carolina take advantage of this partnership, known as the BMW Scholars Program. In order to be considered for admission, students must be in their first or second semester of earning a degree with a major related to manufacturing such as maintenance or robotics. Graduates from the two-year program will have the chance to find employment at BMW Manufacturing Co., LLC.

Tri-County Technical College

Located in Pendleton, Tri-County Technical College takes part in the BMW Scholars program. Candidates in this program will combine traditional instruction with practical experience in a state-of-the-art manufacturing environment. Students seeking employment as a maintenance technician should consider TCTC's industrial electronics technology, mechatronics technology, or general engineering technology majors, while those interested in working as production associates should look into the industrial supervision technology or automotive technology majors.

Spartanburg Community College

Another school in South Carolina participating in the Scholars program is Spartanburg Community College, located in Spartanburg. Spartanburg also partners with a number of other organizations, meaning that students can choose to complete a similar program for a different company if the Scholars program is not an ideal fit. Prospective students for the BMW program will first need to enroll in an approved field of study, such as automated manufacturing technology, electronics engineering technology, or mechatronics.

Greenville Technical College

This Greenville school is the third and final college to offer students the chance to take part in the BMW Scholars program. Interested students should possess excellent verbal and written communication skills, along with organizational and time management skills. Students will need to choose a related major, and once admitted can begin working towards the Scholars program.
