Overview

Southern Polytechnic State University Logo

Southern Polytechnic State University, a four-year institution, is proud to be Georgia’s technology university. Our academic, professional, outreach, and service programs embrace all aspects of technology, including the practical applied skills needed to solve today’s real-world problems and the theoretical knowledge necessary to meet tomorrow’s challenges. SPSU graduates are well prepared to lead the scientific and economic development of an increasingly complex state, nation, and world.

Our mission is to serve both traditional and non-traditional students at the undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education levels, in engineering and engineering technology, the sciences, applied liberal arts, business, and professional programs. We work to develop the broader community’s intellectual, cultural, economic, and human resources. Facilitated by our innovative faculty, dedicated staff, and supportive campus environment, our learning community empowers SPSU students with the ability and vision to transform the future.

  • Of the more than 4,800 students enrolled, 17 percent come from 95 foreign countries. Both traditional and non-traditional students attend Southern Polytechnic; about one-third of the student population is composed of working professionals.

  • The university offers 23 undergraduate majors through four bachelor’s degree programs, including the only nationally accredited bachelor of architecture degree in the University System of Georgia.

  • Eight graduate-degree programs are offered in fields including computer science, construction, engineering technology, management, quality assurance, technical and professional communication, information technology, and software engineering. One associate’s degree program is offered in general studies.
