Albany Technical College is sharing a grant from the Department of Labor which will be split between three separate technical colleges.
Atlanta Technical College, Athens Technical College, and Albany Technical College were all chosen to received a portion of a $13.5 million dollar grant. Although Albany Tech will only be receiving a $1.2 million dollar share, Public Relations Manager, Wendy Howell says they are still thrilled.
"We're still obviously very excited to get the share we'll get, I think it will really benefit our students here in that program," said Howell.
The funds will be used to set up an engineering technology program which will be open to all students.
