Eligibility and the Application Process

The AMT Work Sponsorship Program program couples the multi-disciplinary technical foundation provided in BridgeValley's Associate of Applied Science Degree in Advanced Manufacturing Technology with real-world paid work experience with a leading manufacturer. BridgeValley's manufacturing business partners select AMT students to sponsor and provide them with part-time work at their manufacturing facilities while the students obtain their AMT degrees. Manufacturers that are currently sponsoring students include:

  • Toyota Motor Manufacturing West Virginia, Buffalo, West Virginia

New AMT Work Sponsorships begin in August every year and continue through five consecutive BridgeValley terms: Fall, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Spring. Students that successfully complete the AMT Work Sponsorship and receive their AAS AMT Degree are eligible for full-time employment with their sponsoring manufacturer.

To be eligible for an AMT Work Sponsorship with one of BridgeValley's manufacturing business partners, a student must meet all of the following requirements:

  • Be 18 years old.
  • Be illegal-drug-free and committed to remaining illegal-drug-free.
