Advanced Manufacturing Program (AMT)

AMT Program Applications to Open September 6 for Fall 2018 Class. The deadline for submitting the AMT KYFAME application is December 31, 2017.

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 class. You attend class full time two days a week and work at your sponsoring manufacturer three days. You will also learn lean manufacturing principles and develop productive work behaviors that provide excellent self-development skills that are very attractive to employers. The course work implements the multidisciplinary, multiskilled model with courses in electricity, fluid power, mechanics, fabrication, troubleshooting, problem solving, etc.

Program Financial Opportunities
