As one of California’s 10 advanced transportation centers, the college plans on establishing a new alternative fuels demonstration lab in response to the increased number of alternative vehicle fuel sales in the state. Cerritos College, named after Rancho Los Cerritos, a ranch that served prominently in the region in the 19th century, is a two-year institution offering associate degrees and various certificates or transfer credits, which can generally be applied toward the University of California and California State University systems.
