The South Orange County Community College District (SOCCCD), in concert with Saddleback College and Irvine Valley College (IVC), is developing a new education park at the former Marine Corps Station, Tustin. The Advanced Technology and Education Park (ATEP) is a 61.42-acre site in the Tustin Legacy, a master planned community in the City of Tustin. ATEP will focus on advanced technology, career technical, and workforce development training programs to support high demand industries.
The SOCCCD Board of Trustees approved the ATEP Development Framework in June 2015. The framework is intended to guide future development of the site and to assist potential educational and business partners in understanding the vision for ATEP.
ATEP Mission Statement
The mission of ATEP is to offer applied education and training programs in current and emerging technological careers driven by innovative business, industry and education partnerships.
