Advanced Transportation Technology & Energy Initiative
The Advanced Transportation Technology and Energy program (ATTE) was created as a means for keeping California competitive as a national leader in advanced transportation and energy technologies and to transform the workforce in the rapidly developing, technology-driven transportation and energy industries. Improving the environment and stimulating the economy are benefits the ATTE program brings to our region and state.
Over the fifteen years since the ATTE Initiative was created, it has and continues to respond to this guiding principle by providing an array of transportation, energy, and related technical education, assistance and outreach programs throughout California. ATTE provides students, technicians, faculty, public and other initiative centers with the education, training, and resources they need to effectively learn, teach and work with advanced transportation and energy fields.
The following are a few of the program areas in which the ATTE Center at College of the Desert has provided education, training, and technical assistance:
- Electric, Hybrid, and Hydrogen Fuel Cells
- Gaseous Fuels for Light and Heavy Duty Vehicles
- Automotive Clean Air Emissions
- Bio Fuels
- Energy Efficiency
- Utility-Scale Solar Energy
- Wind Energy
