KY FAME - Kentucky Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education

Advanced Manufacturing Program (AMT)

Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT) is a work and study program that gives a student the opportunity to take the technical knowledge acquired in the classroom and immediately put it to work on the shop floor of a regional manufacturing facility. Selected and sponsored by participating manufacturing companies, these students attend classes two days a week, then apply the concepts they have learned in a real-world manufacturing plant the other three days of the week.

The courses are multi-disciplined with classes in electricity, hydraulics, mechanical drive systems, machining, troubleshooting, and problem solving. Students will also learn Lean manufacturing and Six Sigma principles while developing professional workplace skills that are in high demand.
