Now Accepting Applications for Summer and Fall 2017 Semester
A new partnership between Jefferson State and Kamtek, a world class manufacturing supplier in the automotive industry, will provide local students with financial assistance for tuition and books, a paid internship, and a career opportunity this fall.
Each year the partnership will provide up to 15 Jefferson State manufacturing students an opportunity for a paid 24-hour-a-week internship at Kamtek. Students will work as production interns while taking classes toward an associate in applied science degree. Classes are within Jefferson State’s Manufacturing Systems Technology AAS Degree option.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for our students and we are very excited about the partnership with Kamtek,” said Jefferson State Interim President Keith Brown. “The partnership helps students with their college costs and provides them with real-world training for in-demand employment.”
Adhering to the highest quality standards, Kamtek supports many OEM’s including Mercedes-Benz, Ford Motor Company, Volkswagen, Nissan and KIA in the local area.
“We are experiencing tremendous growth and are excited to partner with Jefferson State to introduce students to the excellent career opportunities in the Automotive Manufacturing Industry,” said Kamtek Assistant General Manager Tom Sanor. “Through our internships, we offer real-life learning opportunities to compliment the formal education from Jefferson State along with financial assistance for the student.”
“Our goal is to develop a highly trained and capable workforce that is ready to join our team as we continue to support the needs of our customers,” said Sanor.
