Strong response to the region's business, industrial and the professional needs, leadership in technology and solid preparation for advanced study characterize the history of Chattanooga State Community College. From its opening in downtown Chattanooga in September 1965, the institution has been focused on supplying the technical workforce of the region, particularly in engineering technology and computer science.

2009 was a landmark year for Chattanooga State. That year the College was selected to operate the Volkswagen Academy, the training center for the Volkswagen's North American assembly plant in North Chattanooga. In July, the College was re-named Chattanooga State Community College by the General Assembly; and in the fall enrollment broke 11,500.

The College now boasts the largest postsecondary enrollment in the Tri-State area and the largest training function in East Tennessee. Chattanooga State is the most comprehensive community college in Tennessee in curriculum and in service to the community.
