Advanced Manufacturing Technology


Advanced Manufacturing Technology A.A.S. degree graduates not immediately entering the workforce may transfer to an institution that offers a bachelor’s degree in such studies as mechatronics, advanced manufacturing technology, or mechanical engineering technology.

Students in this program are also eligible for NIMS (National Institute of Metalworking Skills) certifications.



Advanced Manufacturing Technology students prepare for apprentice/entry-level positions in modern manufacturing facilities and machine shops locally as well as nearly anywhere in the country. Typical tasks include setting up and operating equipment such as engine or turret lathes, milling machines, and power presses. More advanced tasks may involve operating CNC manufacturing equipment as well as PLCs or robots for assembly lines.

AMT graduates are attractive to employers who implement team-oriented design, production, quality, and maintenance systems within the manufacturing environment.
