There are numerous scholarships available for engineering technology and pre-engineering students. Scholarships are sponsored by local community organizations such as the Associated General Contractors of East Tennessee. In addition to these scholarships, students from Catoosa, Walker, Dade, and Whitfield Counties in Georgia and Jackson County Alabama are eligible for in-state tuition.


Chattanooga State's Engineering & Information Technologies Department has forged a number of unique partnerships designed to provide training for the local workforce that will qualify them for high-tech positions available in the Greater Chattanooga area. By combining hands-on training experience with classroom instruction, students are successfully completing their course of study and finding jobs in their chosen career.
