What Makes the AMT Program Different?
Over two years, accepted students will earn a competitive hourly wage while working three days each week; with planning, these wages can cover all of a student’s education expenses. There are also potential grants and financial aid.
Although the program is for five-semesters, there will be opportunities for the sponsor company to hire graduates as full time employees. Graduates of the AMT program will be equipped with the needed skills and experience that many manufacturing companies are actively seeking.
