Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT) combines principles of mechanical engineering with high-level design innovation to create products and processes that are better, faster and stronger.
At the core of AMT Training is the design and application of original and effective solutions related to manufacturing, packaging and distribution to keep up with the dynamic needs of today’s ever-evolving industries. AMT is innovation for the future—and it’s everywhere.
Modern manufacturing is fueled by technology, and companies rely on up-to-the-minute advances to remain competitive and relevant. AMT is at the forefront of these breakthroughs, and those in the field design and develop new products, processes and procedures to keep the gears turning across nearly every industry.
Sullivan Tech’s Advanced Manufacturing Technology Program is more than just tinkering. We combine principles of mechanical engineering with high-level design innovation to create products and processes that are better, faster, and stronger. Because here at Sullivan Tech, we make it happen.
What Does the Future of AMT Look Like?
Expect an upsurge in employment opportunities due to the current skill gap.
The Manufacturing Institute and Accenture’s 2014 manufacturing skill and training study highlights the industry’s urgent need for skilled workers and the wealth of opportunities this need has created:
Expect higher pay and better benefits if you invest in your education.
If you hold an associate or bachelor’s degree in AMT, you can expect to earn significantly more income and more benefits across the industry.
If you like to use your mind as well as your hands to solve complex mechanical problems, a degree in Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT) from Sullivan College of Technology & Design was made for you.
Offering a solid foundation in the principles of mechanical, electrical and industrial engineering in addition to practical training in automated systems operation, Sullivan Tech’s AMT degree program prepares tomorrow’s innovators for profitable careers creating marketable products and services.
SCTD’s Advanced Manufacturing Technology program is designed so that students first complete coursework for the associate degree, and then have the option to continue coursework for the bachelor’s degree.

Meet the Chair
Cory Lewison has been with Sullivan College of Technology and Design (SCTD) for more than 25 years. She has an associate degree in Electronics from RETS Electronics Institute, now Brown-Mackey College, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science Management from Sullivan University. She also holds an industry license as an FCC Radio Operator. In addition, she worked as an electronics technician for Amatrol, Inc. for three years prior to joining the faculty at SCTD. Lewison is actively involved with the Kentucky Association of Manufacturers (KAM), where she has been working with Manufacturing Skills Certification Deployment.
SCTD has a really hands-on approach in all facets of the CNA program. I honestly don’t think I would be in the job I am in if I did not have my degree.
