Manufacturers around the world are having a hard time finding qualified workers to fill advanced manufacturing jobs. In fact, more than 3.5 million of these jobs are expected to go unfilled by the year 2025. But now, the Haas eKentucky Advanced Manufacturing Institute (eKAMI) is about to change all that, right here for the thousands of uniquely talented men and women of East Kentucky.
eKAMI students participate in immersive programs, with the goal of building the skilled workforce needed to attract skilled, high-paying jobs to the region. These jobs are for the next generation of manufacturing such as computer numerical control (CNC) machinists, as well as machine building and tool maintenance technicians for the aerospace and other advanced manufacturing industries.
