- Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College has served as the community's premier technical educator for many years. Originally funded by a bond election, the institution was established Sept. 1, 1959, and named the Asheville Industrial Education Center. Following legislation creating the North Carolina System of Community Colleges that was enacted in 1963 by the General Assembly, the name was changed on Jan. 27, 1964, to Asheville-Buncombe Technical Institute. This legislation enabled the College to confer the Associate in Applied Science degree for the first time at graduation ceremonies in August 1964.
- The College offers the Associate in Arts, the Associate in Science, and the Associate in Applied Science degrees, diplomas, and certificates. The Associate in Arts and Associate in Science degree programs are offered in the Division of Arts and Sciences. All career curricula and courses are offered through three divisions: Allied Health and Public Service Education, Business and Hospitality Education, and Engineering and Applied Technology. In addition, noncredit academic, avocational, practical skills, and occupational classes and activities are offered through the Continuing Education Division.
- Continuing Education courses includes Adult Basic Education, Human Resources Development, New and Expanding Industry Training, Small Business Center, Total Quality Management, and Focused Industrial. More than 25,000 students are enrolled in curriculum and continuing education courses, giving us the largest headcount of any college or university in Western North Carolina. Yet despite our size, we offer small classes, averaging 16 students per instructor in our two-year degree and one-year diploma programs.
- The main campus is located off Victoria Road in Asheville, North Carolina, a city repeatedly named as one of the most livable towns in America. The Madison Campus is located in Marshall, NC. The Enka Campus is located in the Enka community near Asheville, NC.
