ACC Riverside has been around since 1984, but it’s one of the college’s most forward-thinking, technologically advanced campuses. It’s also home to the Latino/Latin American Studies Center (El Centro, for short). El Centro strives to build a college-going culture and hosts regular activities that showcase Hispanic contributions to state and local history.
The Engineering Technology Program is based at ACC Riverside, so many students study things like renewable energy, nanoelectronics manufacturing, and robotics. Additionally, the campus offers a broad range of core curriculum classes intended for university transfer. Career-technical training is also available in welding, automotive mechanics, building construction, and more. As a Riverside student, you’ll have access to a full range of support services and conveniences. There's free tutoring, advising, counseling, library services, and a fitness center.
Riverside is designated as a destination campus with expanded services and extended hours of operation.
Hands-on training programs and industry-equipped facilities prepare students for jobs in computer-aided design, production processes, quality control, electronics, and more.
Helping students build exciting careers in manufacturing, DMCAT programs deliver practical, hands-on training in fields as diverse as computer-aided design and robotics.
“El Centro” celebrates Hispanic heritage and engages with the local residents. Visitors can view the local Latino history in a multi-panel mural created by renowned artist Fidencio Durán.
