Borton-Lawson congratulates the first graduating class of the Advanced Manufacturing Engineering Technology (AMET) program at Johnson College. Automation Specialist Matthew Peruchetti serves on the AMET Program Advisory Committee.
Johnson College began the AMET program in 2015 as a way to upgrade an existing Precision Machining Technology program that would help students transition into the field with not only machining training, but automation and robotics as well. The program allows students to train on CNC machines, lathes, 3D printers, drones, and robots.
One example of the new technology being put to work by the AMET students is their recent Quadcopter capstone project. As a team, the seniors built a fully functioning drone using principles from electrical, electronic, machining, 3D printing, and additive manufacturing. This project allowed them to use their creativity and skills to bring all of their studies together in one project.
Borton-Lawson is proud to join other industry partners – Rexel, Imperial Tool, and Automation Supply – in creating and guiding a degree program that not only satisfies the manufacturing needs of today, but aims to keep up with changing technologies of the future
