History
Originally known as the Chattanooga State Technical Institute upon its founding in 1965, it opened as Tennessee’s first technical college and Southeast Tennessee’s first public institution of higher education. In 1967, Chattanooga State moved to its present location on Amnicola Highway. Chattanooga State Technical Institute’s goal was to prepare students with marketable technical skills that would bridge the gap between the engineer and the craftsman. The technical programs offered A.S. and A.E. degrees and certificate programs, while remaining flexible to students and industry needs. In 1973, the college was renamed and reorganized as Chattanooga State Technical Community College through the passage of Senate Bill 1010. Senate Bill 1010 assured the college would: provide comprehensive one and two-year occupational, college parallel, continuing education, and community service programs; provide quality technical and scientific occupational programs; serve as a regional technical school to train engineering technicians or technical workers in the fields of production, distribution, or service. Chattanooga State’s mission expanded to include vocational education on July 1, 1981, when the State Area Vocational-Technical School (AVTS) merged with the College. That merger was made permanent by the Tennessee legislature effective July 1, 1983. In 1996 the Tennessee Board of Regents renamed the AVTS to the Tennessee Technology Center in keeping with their updated role as technical/ adult education/vocational training centers in the state of Tennessee.
