Manufacturing in the United States – and the world – has changed rapidly over the past decade as machines and computers have taken over jobs and responsibilities traditionally held by workers. The Advanced Integrated Manufacturing (AIM) Program focuses on helping students understand and succeed in this rapidly changing sector of the world economy by teaching them critical thinking, problem solving, and teamwork skills as they learn how to test, evaluate, report on, and design manufacturing programs and solutions for a wide range of industries. The program teaches both basic and advanced foundational skills in AIM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) related areas such as machining, welding, fabrication, 3-D printing and design, CNC (Computer Numerical Control), CAD (Computer Aided Design), and Robotics.
While covering a full curriculum of content specific to this trade, students will be trained and assessed in accordance with Proficiency Based Graduation Requirements (PBGRs). For more information on Proficiency Based Learning, visit the VT Agency of Education’s website at: education.vermont.gov.
