A 12-year-old boy is set to make history as the youngest student to study aerospace engineering at Georgia Tech. 

Caleb Anderson is expected to gain admission to the prestigious university this fall after meeting with the school's president earlier this month. 

The tween prodigy, who hails from Marietta, Georgia, has stunned administrators with his advanced knowledge and his ability to assess and retain complex information. 

'I don't think anything Caleb has done has been normal for us,' the youngster's mother, Claire Anderson, told CBS This Morning on Monday. 

Caleb began mimicking his mother's speech when he was just four weeks old. 

By the age of two, he could read the Constitution. At age three, he gained acceptance to MENSA. 

In addition to English, Caleb is fluent in Spanish, French and Mandarin.  

'I'm not really smart, I just grasp information quickly,' a modest Caleb told the news program, which followed him on a tour of Georgia Tech.
