Women in Industry

Women in Industry started in 2011 as a one-day event to introduce interested women to the technical programs offered at Amarillo College.

Historically male dominated, two-year technical degrees and certificates in fields like HVAC, machining, electromechanical  and I&E result in higher paying jobs and faster career advancement than non-technical two-year degrees. 

Amarillo College supports and empowers women to explore and pursue these non-traditional technical degrees and career paths.

The program now includes a club, organized in 2014, that meets for lunch once a month hosted by local companies where members are introduced to the business and given a tour of the facility. 

For a tour of the East Campus and an introduction to the technical programs at Amarillo College, or for information on how to join the Women in Industry Club if you're a student in one of the technical programs,  please call Ina Fiel at (806) 335-4351 or send her an email at Ina M. Fiel <imfiel@actx.edu>

Please share your contact information with us here. That way we can keep you informed about upcoming opportunities to explore the many technical career options for women at Amarillo College.
