The Advanced Manufacturing Technician Program (AMT)

WHAT IS THE ADVANCED MANUFACTURING TECHNICIAN (AMT) PROGRAM?

AMT is a dual-track, five-semester program that matches education with continuous real-world working experience through a leading manufacturer. The AMT program combines proven workplace components of apprenticeship with the earn-and-learn model in subjects including electricity, fluid power, mechanics, fabrication and robotics. The result is paid work experience that includes hands-on application and the best practices of a world-class manufacturer. Students who complete this program receive the AMT certification and an associate degree in applied science.

PATHWAY OPTIONS

Students who participate in the INFAME program are making a decision that will give them multiple career options. The Advanced Manufacturing Technician (AMT) degree is only the beginning. Upon completion of this associate degree, students can continue full-time employment or seamlessly transition into a degree program in business or engineering.

THE INFAME DIFFERENCE

Students sponsored through INFAME are not only receiving training for a future job, they also are obtaining a high-level technical education and practical job experience. INFAME provides students with 25 months of relevant, paid job experience that matches the learning environment. As a result, INFAME students are better prepared for their future careers.

INFAME develops programs that focus on the entire person. Traditional educational programs emphasize theory. INFAME programs develop the needed technical skills and job experience as well as personal behaviors and core manufacturing skills. The end result is that INFAME graduates are ready to hit the ground running in a manufacturing career or further education.
