SOCCCD's Advanced Technology and Education Park (ATEP) is currently housed in a temporary facility at the corner of Red Hill Avenue and Valencia Avenue. The goal of ATEP is to develop a vibrant education/private enterprise park with a focus on advanced technology and workforce development and to attract a variety of educational and commercial uses including higher education institutions, R&D companies, high-tech manufacturing, general office, corporate headquarters, medical-oriented facilities and other uses complimentary to ATEP's mission.
The entire ATEP campus, when complete, will sit on approximately 65 acres. The first permanent ATEP building is being constructed by Irvine Valley College and will is located at the corner of Lansdowne Road and Valencia Avenue. This 32,492 SF building is scheduled for completion in December 2017 and will focus on career technical education by including classrooms, specialized teaching labs, a certified testing center, economic & workforce development offices and a student resource center.
Future plans call for a Center for Innovation in Healthcare Education to be constructed by Saddleback College. This approximately 30,000 SF building would offer training in patient simulations, robotics, advanced diagnostics, inter-professional collaboration and experiential practice.
In September 2007, the Rancho Santiago Community College District (RSCCD) completed construction of a 52,000-square-foot facility on 15 acres at the northwest corner of Armstrong Avenue and Warner Avenue. At the site, RSCCD's Santa Ana College, in partnership with the Orange County Sheriff's Department (OCSD), provides Peace Officer Standards on Training (POST) certified instruction through its Law Enforcement Basic Academy, as well as advanced officer training.
