The Central Coast Institute of Technology
was founded in 1978 for the purpose of training engineers and technical personnel already employed by the defense industry or prior military servicemembers.
The Institute offered bachelors and masters degree programs in aeronautical sciences, electrical, mechanical and systems engineering, and computer science.
In August of 1998, The Central Coast Institute of Technology closed its doors to the public, and instituted a distance learning program until 2001. The Institute’s doors remain closed today.
