The Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education (FAME) is a 5-semester earn-and-learn program to train global-best, entry-level, advanced manufacturing technicians, which is a very in-demand job. Students work for a sponsoring employer for 3 days a week and attend school 2 days a week to get an associate degree in Mechatronics – Robotics and Automated Systems.
