ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dozens of prospective students were at Albany Tech for their open house.

Prospective students had a chance to learn more about what programs the school has to offer. People who signed up for fall classes got their application fees waived. President Dr. Anthony Parker says the school is geared toward work force development.  

"One of the ways that an individual can be engaged in the work force and be almost as sure of having a good job in the area that they're interested in is spending a year or possibly a year and a half or two at a technical college especially Albany Tech," said Dr. Anthony Parker, Albany Technical College President  

"Yeah many things interest me but my option about house designing, computer technology is what I'm interested in," said Abdullah Aljohani, prospective student. "So, I think I found what I'm looking for."  

The last day to enroll for fall classes is August 8th. Classes for Fall Semester will start August the 20th.
