School Notes

  • The Macon campus of Central Georgia Technical College is located off of Eisenhower Parkway across from the Macon Mall. The first students of the Macon-Area Vocational Technical School were accepted in 1966; at the time, the Vocational-Technical School operated under the governance of the Bibb County Board of Education. By 1973, student growth, industrial growth, and community demand led to the need for a new and larger campus. This new facility, located at 3300 Macon Tech Drive, was completed and occupied in 1978. In 1987 the name was changed to Macon Technical Institute (MTI). Whether you are just beginning your academic career or returning to college to update your skills, there has never been a better time to enter CGTC's training programs. We now offer more than 224 programs of study including 35 associate degrees, 45 diplomas, and 144 technical certificates.
