Gateway’s AMT program is a two-year associate degree program that provides students with a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience with world-class manufacturers while also earning a competitive salary. Students attend classes at Gateway two days a week and work with sponsoring manufacturing companies three days per week, allowing them to apply what they learn in the classroom to real-world situations.

In addition to technical coursework in areas such as electricity, robotics, and preventive maintenance, students also participate in workshops that focus on developing essential skills for success in the manufacturing industry, such as problem-solving, communication, and work ethic. By working closely with both the college and the sponsoring companies, students are able to gain a well-rounded education that prepares them for a successful career in advanced manufacturing.
