Programs of Study- Aviation and Industrial Technologies

Rapid advancements in the industrial technology fields make the need for current education and training essential. Georgia Northwestern Technical College (GNTC) Aviation and Industrial Technologies programs combine classroom study and practical training emphasizing skill development, related technical knowledge, and general education. GNTC offers a wide selection of degrees, diplomas, and certificates. These programs are offered on both a full-time and part-time basis, although part-time enrollment will require longer to complete. All programs are not offered on every college campus. As with all GNTC programs, students interested in Aviation and Industrial Technologies programs should consult specific program information in this catalog and call or visit the Admissions Office to discuss program admission requirements and entry dates. The following is a list of the Aviation and  Industrial Technologies degrees, diplomas, and certificates that GNTC offers. GNTC reserves the right to cancel courses due to inadequate enrollment.
