Alamance Community College’s $16 million, 55,000 square-foot Advanced Applied Technology Center (AATC) opened in August 2017, providing students with hands-on instruction in five key
industrial technology programs: Automotive Systems Technology, Welding Technology, Air Conditioning/Heating/Refrigeration, Computer-Integrated Machining, and Mechatronics Engineering Technology. The
facility represents ACC’s role in addressing a skills gap that will enlarge, enhance and fill a pipeline of skilled workers desperately needed by local employers. The AATC, the most sophisticated and
ambitious capital project since the College was founded in 1958, was funded through actions taken by the Alamance County Board of Commissioners.
