Explore a Career in U.S. Manufacturing

The U.S. manufacturing industry is one of the most innovative and exciting places for graduates in Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing Technology programs to build a career. Every year, employers are seeking bright young people who are studying STEM subjects to join the manufacturing industry.

Parents and Students

We encourage parents and students to consider all the educational opportunities available to them. As baby boomers retire, U.S. manufacturing needs the next generation of engineers.
AMT works locally with The National Coalition of Advanced Technology Centers (NCATC) member schools, which can be found in most major cities, and can set up internships with local manufacturing companies.

Through our education partnerships with NCATC schools and other four-year colleges and universities, we funnel the best candidates to U.S. manufacturing companies by connecting students to internships and jobs.
