Global Logis­tics Tech­nol­ogy Education


Founded as the Guil­ford Indus­trial Edu­ca­tion Cen­ter on 1958, the train­ing facil­ity was estab­lished to pre­pare work­ers for tech­ni­cal jobs cre­ated by the rapid man­u­fac­tur­ing growth in the county and opened with 50 stu­dents enrolled in two classes. The State Board of Com­mu­nity Col­leges approved GTI’s request to add a col­lege trans­fer pro­gram in 1983, and the insti­tu­tion became Guil­ford Tech­ni­cal Com­mu­nity Col­lege. GTCC’s mis­sion has basi­cally remained unchanged: the insti­tu­tion is charged to give the peo­ple of Guil­ford County the train­ing and edu­ca­tion they need to com­pete in the job market.

GTCC offers 93 degrees, 26 diplo­mas and 78 cer­tifi­cates, a total of 197 awards from 90 unique pro­grams. The col­lege also offers per­sonal enrich­ment courses, a vari­ety of adult lit­er­acy oppor­tu­ni­ties and train­ing for busi­ness and indus­try. GTCC oper­ates from three cam­puses; the main cam­pus in Jamestown, the High Point Cam­pus, the Greens­boro Cam­pus, and two cen­ters; the T. H. Davis Avi­a­tion Cen­ter, Pied­mont Triad Inter­na­tional Air­port and the Small Busi­ness Cen­ter, Greensboro.

Guil­ford Tech­ni­cal Com­mu­nity Col­lege is accred­ited by the Com­mis­sion on Col­leges of the South­ern Asso­ci­a­tion of Col­leges and Schools to award asso­ciate degrees, diplo­mas and certificates.
