Davis Applied Technology College (formerly Davis Area Vocational Center) was created by an act of the 1978 Utah State Legislature to serve the residents of Davis and Morgan Counties with technical training. In June 2001, a special session of the Legislature passed House Bill 1003 creating the Utah College of Applied Technology (UCAT), the state's 10th newest institution of higher education. There are eight applied technology campuses: Bridgerland, Davis, Dixie, Mountainland, Ogden-Weber, Tooele, Southwest, and Uintah Basin. We are a trusted learning community embracing technical education to promote economic growth and student development. Our vision is recognition regionally, nationally and internationally for our unique approach and significant contributions in technical training, educational advancement and economic development. We value students, faculty and staff as individuals and empower them through respect and equitable treatment. We celebrate personal, cultural and ethnic diversity. We take pride in cost-effective training and flexible scheduling that allows students to prepare for careers or update skills. We promote career and educational pathways by providing hands-on, competency-based training. Our curriculum reflects the most recent technological and theoretical development to meet employer and student needs.
