ATC has grown into a multi-service, two-year comprehensive college offering numerous educational and workforce development opportunities through academic programs, noncredit courses, and corporate training solutions.
Over the past 50 years, the dedication of College administration, faculty, staff, and local officials have enabled ATC to be on the forefront of promoting technical education and increasing access to higher education.
Today, ATC serves about 2,000 credit students per semester, with 55 full-time and 121 part-time faculty members and 78 full-time staff and 29 part-time staff members. ATC has more than 45 associate degree, diploma, and certificate programs in areas of health sciences, public service, business, engineering, manufacturing, nuclear, computer technology, and college transfer.
ATC’s 50th anniversary year in 2022 will provide an incredible opportunity for students, alumni, employees, retirees, and community partners to share their stories and photos capturing their own amazing starts and experiences in connection with the College. We hope everyone will continue to explore and enjoy these memories throughout the anniversary year.
