Atlanta Technical College: Your Success Starts Here
By Atlanta Technical College
The strength of Atlanta rests in its citizens whose skills, values, and ethics make them a productive and competitive force. The men and women of Atlanta should be productive workers if the city and its environs are to attract new business and industry and strengthen existing companies that have enabled Atlanta to become the commercial hub of the entire Southeast.
Atlanta Technical College (ATC) has experienced an impressive amount of growth in the last year, with a 5 percent increase in enrollment from summer 2018 to summer 2019, and an over 7 percent increase in enrollment from fall 2018 to fall 2019. We proudly offer more than 150 degree, diploma, and certificate options in over 40 program areas. Some of these programs have been recognized as the best in both the state of Georgia and the nation, including Pharmacy Technology, Dental Hygiene, Computer and Information Sciences, and Culinary Services. We were named as one of the Top 150 Community Colleges in the nation by Aspen Institute and will compete in the 2021 Aspen Prize Competition. We have a $65 million annual economic impact in the Atlanta region thanks to the comprehensive nature of our curriculum.
As the enrollment numbers grow, so too does the college’s ability to impact the neighborhoods in our service area. We proudly offer lifelong educational opportunities and experiences through academic and innovative career preparation. Because of ATC’s ability to offer outstanding education at an affordable cost, the college has been recognized as one of the most financially effective colleges in the United States by multiple national publications, including BankMobile. The college is dedicated to enriching the lives of the citizens in the City of Atlanta, Fulton County, and Clayton County by providing the tools for achieving economic prosperity in high-demand career fields.
We continue to increase opportunities for student success through innovative educational initiatives. The Center for Workforce Innovation at Atlanta Technical College is an initiative that focuses on program curriculum supported by industry leaders throughout Atlanta while also providing on-campus career development coaching. Through partnerships with Atlanta businesses such as Delta Air Lines, Georgia Power, Home Depot, Intercontinental Exchange, and SunTrust, ATC is committed to supporting students throughout their educational journeys. This will allow them to gain real knowledge and real skills, as well as to achieve real success in their chosen professional fields.
For over half a century, ATC has served Atlanta and the surrounding communities by utilizing educational and economic initiatives that help the local community, including business partners and our growing student population to realize their full potential. Our progress is the result of our students, faculty, and staff’s dedication to our mission: transforming lives through the power of technical education.
