Albany Technical College recently acquired the Albany Technical College Engineering Prep Academy (ATCEPA) after receiving the Predominantly Black Institute grant from the Department of Education. The primary objective of the grant is to introduce minority high school students to the field of engineering technology through the taking of college level courses, and via initiatives geared towards highlighting math and science engineering concepts. The academic technology programs associated with the project are Electromechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Civil Engineering Technology, Drafting Technology, and Electronics.
High school students are encouraged to take advantage of the five-year project by the way of participating in the college’s Dual Enrollment program. The academy will accept 25 high school students per semester into an identified track, which enables selected participants to seek out a degree, diploma, or certificate. Each student will be provided an Educational Plan to assist them in working towards completion of the aforementioned credential(s).
To learn more about the academy or to retrieve an application, please contact the ATCEPA Director at 229.430.2882.
