Through an innovative employment training program, Tech is helping veterans make a meaningful transition to civilian life in Georgia.
In 2013, Georgia Tech Professional Education launched a program that prepares veterans, active-duty service members, and military spouses for jobs in the civilian world. The award-winning Veterans Education Training and Transition (VET²) program is the first of its kind in the U.S., and it's already changing lives in Georgia. After five years, more than 900 have graduated — and 87 percent of them have been offered employment by participating companies.
