The Cypress College Advanced Transportation Technology and Energy Department was established in 1996 to serve the Southern California region in the development of alternative fuels awareness and advanced transportation technology and energy education. As a California State Economic and Workforce Development Center (EWD), Cypress College works closely with government, industry, and high school partners in assuring Southern California's place as a leader in new and emerging advanced transportation technology and energy.
As a means for keeping California competitive as a national leader in advanced transportation technologies, the ATTE Statewide Initiative (ATTEi) was established to transform the workforce in the rapidly developing, technology-driven transportation industry while improving the environment and stimulating the economy.
The ATTEi Centers train technicians to meet the challenges of tomorrow's imminent transportation technologies. There are ten centers strategically located throughout the state, which provide training in the areas of alternative fuels, alternative fueled vehicles, renewable energy, intelligent transportation systems, wireless communication and many other newly emerging technologies.
Through the leadership, guidance and coordination of the ATTE Initiative, employers' needs are assessed and meaningful training programs are developed. The results are consistent, replicable curriculum, services, and programs tailored to the needs of each region and employer in California.
The Advanced Transportaion Technology and Energy Initiative (ATTEi) at Cypress College is part of a statewide network funded through the California Community College's Economic and Workforce Development (CCCEWD) program.
