Yesterday, the second cohort of the Advanced Manufacturing Education Program (AMEP) was recognized during an official signing day. We are thrilled to continue this partnership with the Caterpillar Lafayette Engine Center. Congratulations to these five new students who are embarking on an exciting path for their education and career!

The AMEP was launched last fall and allows high school graduates and those looking to start a career in manufacturing to get a free Ivy Tech education while working and learning on the job at the Caterpillar Lafayette Engine Center.
