August 20, 2015- Albany, GA- Albany Technical College and Savannah State University will hold an articulation agreement signing ceremony on Friday, August 21, 2015, beginning at 2:30pm in the Executive Board Room of Albany Tech's Logistics Education Center at 1704 South Slappey Boulevard.
The goal with the articulation agreement is to provide Associate of Applied Science (AAS) graduates of Albany Tech's Electronics Engineering Technology program with an opportunity to continue on with Savannah State University to earn their Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering Technology (BSEET).
"The Savannah State University articulation will offer yet another option for Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology students at Albany Technical College to further their education at the Baccalaureate level," said Manual Hall, Chair of the Electronics Technology programs at Albany Technical College.
By providing Albany Tech students who choose to specialize in Electronics Engineering Technology with a four-year degree option, this agreement is designed for students to matriculate his/her first two years at Albany Tech culminating with an associate's degree and completing their bachelor's degree at Savannah State.
"The articulation is extraordinary in that a prospective student graduating with an Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology degree from Albany Tech would be able to enter Savannah State with a junior standing," said Hall.
Additionally, Savannah State University (SSU) is expanding the capabilities of the engineering technology department. During the 2015 Georgia state legislative session, SSU received a green light for a $20 million building project. The development includes upgrades and additions to the electronics and civil engineering learning spaces, labs and equipment.
The articulation also supports the Complete College Georgia (CCG) initiative for all USG institutions, which seeks to simplify earning four-year degrees for students in the state.
