April 29, 2021 - Savannah State University's College of Sciences and Technology has received a newly established $25,000 endowment from the Georgia Department of Transportation and the Southern Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (SASHTO). The donation will provide perpetual resources for rising juniors and seniors from the state of Georgia with career interest in the transportation industry, while cultivating a partnership between SSU and these entities as a pipeline for students entering the workforce.

“We admire and thank the Georgia Department of Transportation and SASHTO's funding efforts to support the education, research and professional development of civil engineering students,” said Sheri Rouse-Mainor, interim executive director for University Advancement. “By establishing this endowment, they are ensuring the future support of civil engineering students to continue their studies, and future engineers to actualize their dreams for years to come.”

SSU’s Civil Engineering Technology program offers broad-based comprehensive education in both the technical and practical aspects of civil engineering. Students learn how to plan and design systems and utilize modern tools of the industry to solve broadly defined engineering problems through accredited programs.
