Advanced Manufacturing Technician (AMT) Program
AMT Program Application available April 13 for Fall 2017 Class
Earn money while you attend school and you could graduate debt free. This work/study program gives you the opportunity to learn in the environment in which you will work as well as the ability to apply almost immediately what you learned in class on the manufacturing floor. It is not your typical college degree program. You will attend class full time two days a week and work at your sponsoring manufacturer three days. You will also learn essential manufacturing principles and develop productive work behaviors that provide excellent self-development skills that are very attractive to employers. The curriculum implements the multidisciplinary, multiskilled model with courses in electricity, fluid power, mechanics, fabrication, troubleshooting, problem solving, etc.
