South Georgia College to offer the associates degree this fall
The Georgia Institute of Technology has announced a partnership with South George College to establish a new degree program supported by both institutions.
Under the new agreement, Georgia Tech will accept transfer students who meet admissions requirements from South Georgia College and have earned an associate in science (AS) degree in pre-engineering. After completing the program, students will be awarded a bachelor's degree in engineering.
"With Douglas as my hometown, I'm pleased that this new partnership with South Georgia College will ensure that students in south Georgia are able to take advantage of a Georgia Tech education," said Georgia Tech President Wayne Clough.
"The new partnership will allow a smooth academic route for students to pursue a career in engineering. We are looking forward to a long and rewarding partnership with the Georgia Institute of Technology and especially with Georgia Tech Savannah," said South Georgia College President Torri Lilly.
South Georgia College will begin offering the Associate of Science in Pre-Engineering degree this fall.
