SC ATE is recognized for ATE Scholars program

The SC ATE Center of Excellence has been recognized for its innovative Advanced Technological Education (ATE) Scholars program. In the most recent issue of Community College Times, a publication of the American Association of Community Colleges, SC ATE was included in a special insert entitled “NSF celebrates 10 years of successful ATE programs” (Vol. XV, No. 7, April 1, 2003, pg. 18).

SC ATE Modules Adapted in South Texas

Nine modules from the SC ATE curriculum have been adapted for use by the South Texas Advanced Technology Education (STATE) project.

The project is hosted by Del Mar College in Corpus Christi, Texas, with partner educators at Victoria College, Texas A&M Corpus Christi, South Texas Community College, Coastal Bend College and Texas State Technical College.

The SC ATE modules were adapted by interdisciplinary faculty teams and are being pilot tested. The modules will be field tested during 2003-04 academic year. The Del Mar ATE project focuses on the training of process industry technicians.

Faculty members and administrators from Del Mar attended a SC ATE teaching team training session held at Florence-Darlington Technical College last year, and SC ATE staff and faculty presented a teacher training session for STATE participants late last summer. The adaptation of SC ATE curriculum modules was highlighted in a recent STATE newsletter (
