Albany Tech traces its roots back to the establishment of the Monroe Area Vocational-Technical School, which first opened its doors in 1961 with a class of 175 students. In 1972, Monroe Area Vocational-Technical School was merged with Albany Area Vocational-Technical School, keeping the Albany name. The school's campus was moved to its current location during the merger. In 1988, the school was renamed Albany Technical Institute and placed under the direction of the newly formed TCSG (then-named the Department of Technical and Adult Education). Albany Tech was charged at this time with providing technical education opportunities to the residents, businesses and industries within the seven-county service delivery area it currently serves. Following the passage of Georgia House Bill 1187 governing the names of units in the TCSG, Albany Technical Institute was officially renamed Albany Technical College on July 6, 2000
