The Engineering Technology Division at Chattanooga State Community College received an annual donation of $1,000 from the Chattanooga Engineers Club to fund a scholarship. The club has been a long-standing provider of scholarships for students majoring in engineering, science, math or computer science. The influx of corporations moving to the Greater Chattanooga area has greatly increased the demand for employees with training in engineering technology specialties.

In 1924, the Chattanooga Engineers Club was founded “to promote the exchange of ideas and technical knowledge, “ according to the organization’s homepage. The Club was instrumental in conducting feasibility studies and advocating for the establishment of a vocational community college, which led to the creation of Chattanooga State.

Anyone interested in one of the many careers in engineering technology available in the Chattanooga area should inquire about the training offered by the Engineering Technology program at Chattanooga State.  Contact Amanda Bennett at 697-2496 or et_advising@chattanoogastate.edu.
