Electromechanical Technology is now Automated Manufacturing Technology.

Full-Time Adult Classes

11-Month Program
30 Hours of Training Per Week

Components of the Automated Manufacturing Technology program at the James Rumsey Technical Institute include theory, hands-on skills, and applications that qualify the student for entry-level employment in their certification level. Each day, students spend approximately 2 hours in the classroom studying electromechanical theory, and 4 hours in the shop and lab. An additional 2 hours are spent each night working on electromechanical theory homework.

In addition to a lab fee of $200 each semester, students are required to provide their own hand tools, scientific calculator, safety glasses, hard hat, gloves, and electric meter. Access to a computer is required for completing homework assignments, tests, and classwork.
