Georgia Tech is Leading the Way to Assist Military Veterans


The unemployment rate for veterans is currently at 13.9%, while the Georgia unemployment rate is at 8.4%. Georgia Tech, a Military Friendly School, is trying to help turn those numbers around with its new initiative.

Georgia Tech Professional Education has created the Veterans Education Training and Transition Program. The program, called VET2, takes place at the Georgia Tech-Savannah campus allowing military members and veterans to enter into a four week training and transition program with an employer while earning a professional certificate and a stipend.

VET2 is a “one of a kind” program in the country. With a projected success rate of 90-percent, Georgia Tech plans to expand the program to other cities.
