(Ringgold, Georgia) – For the better part of the last decade, Georgia Northwestern Technical College (GNTC) has been going through a process to add a sixth campus in Catoosa County, Georgia. On August 15, the process will be complete as GNTC’s Catoosa County Campus will open its doors for class for the very first time.

Three brand new programs will kick-off on this brand new campus as GNTC launches Cybersecurity, Logistics, and Mechatronics. “These are important new offerings with skilled workers in these fields being in demand in our companies in Northwest Georgia right now,” said GNTC’s Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs Dr. Ginger Mathis. “We have turned this project around in a timely manner to help these students have what they need to become the skilled workforce employers are counting on.”

It was just 20 months ago when college administrators, along with state and local leaders, broke ground on the site in a December 2014 ceremony. “We are anticipating a couple of hundred students for our initial term,” said Mathis. “Between the traditional students and the dual-enrolled high school students from the three Catoosa County High Schools, we are looking forward to some great success stories out of this campus.”
