Working with TX FAME

You’re smart, career-oriented and ready for a well-paying career right now. With Texas Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education (TX FAME), you can dive into a challenging advanced manufacturing career while receiving the education needed to build your resume and make you highly marketable to manufacturers across the state.

Once you’re accepted into TX FAME, you will begin work on a combination education/training program to earn an associate’s degree as an Advanced Manufacturing Technician (AMT). During the week, you will attend classes at a local community college and work for a local employer – all while being paid a competitive wage for your work. After five semesters you will have earned an Associate’s degree in Applied Science in Advanced Manufacturing Technician Track, 60 college credit hours, and two years of work experience. At that point, you’ll be ready to enter the workforce full time with all the skills needed to succeed—and with the potential of no school debt!

What will a typical week look like?

You will attend classes certain days of the week at St. Philip’s Southwest Campus while working the other days of the week at a sponsor’s facility for a competitive wage while gaining hands-on experience.

What will I learn?

As a participant in the AMT program, you will participate in hands-on training and education to develop you as a fully-rounded worker, including:

  • Mastering a multiskilled technical skill set, including electricity, robotics, fluid power, mechanics, fabrication, industrial troubleshooting, and much more
  • The Manufacturing Core Exercises, which prepare you to contribute to a safe and highly efficient, cost effective workplace. These include Safety Culture, Visual Workplace Organization, Lean Manufacturing, Problem Solving, and Machine Reliability
  • The Six Professional Behaviors, including Work Attendance, Initiative, Diligence, Interpersonal Relations, Teamwork, and Verbal and Written Communication

What happens when I complete the program?

You’ll earn:

  • An Associate in Applied Science in Advanced Manufacturing Technician Track
  • 60 college credit hours
  • Approximately 1,800 hours of on-the-job training and work experience
  • Potentially zero student-loan debt
  • Opportunity for full-time employment with a sponsoring employer
