ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Technical College is now working with an out-of-state school to help students earn engineering degrees.

Albany Tech signed an agreement with Middle Tennessee State University that allows electromechanical engineering students to transfer credit hours they earn at Albany Tech to Middle Tennessee State University.  This is the first non-Georgia school to partner with Albany Tech, but it may not be the last.

"We are looking forward to not only embracing this particular agreement, but also looking to seek others as well," said Emmett Griswold, Dean of academic affairs at Albany Tech.

"Engineering is a lifelong learning experience and it's good for them to be able to venture out and get more education," said Chase Mumford Electromechanical engineering technology chair at Albany Tech.

This agreement goes into effect immediately; though Albany Tech is still finalizing all the logistics.
