What is NEIN-FAME?
NEINFAME Chapter President, Jeff Hansen, Steel Dynamics, provides a chapter overview.
Northeast Indiana Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education is part of a national program featuring employer-driven chapters across the nation that provides global-best workforce development through technical training. The NEINFAME chapter was formed in 2019, and is based on the FAME USA model.
NEINFAME connects students with employer partners to sponsor their pursuit of a two-year degree; the sponsor companies provide their selected students with mentoring and a paid work-experience. NEINFAME focuses on developing critical professional skills while attending classes and earning a credential with our education partner, Ivy Tech Community College Fort Wayne.
Sponsor companies of NEINFAME are AMT, Fort Wayne Metals, LH Industries, Micropulse, Steel Dynamics and Zimmer Biomet. The program is open to any graduating high school senior, or anyone interested in a hands-on, manufacturing-based, STEM-related profession.
