Southern Polytechnic State University - Bachelor's Degree

After World War II, the need for technicians spiked due to a major economic shift in Georgia from being a largely agricultural state to one that is more industry heavy. The new industries required technicians to bridge the growing gap between engineers and craftsmen, effectively the gap between research/development and building/implementing.

            2014-, Great choice for Master's in IT

            I am very happy that I chose to pursue the MSIT program at SPSU. I loved the flexibility I had. The professors were phenomenal, as they were knowledgeable in the subjects and always willing to help- that was especially good for an online student. I learned a lot in my program and I'm so happy that my diploma has the SPSU name on it. I hope that the merge with KSU will be a positive move for the MSIT program and the university as a whole.
