McDowell Technical Community College in Marion, North Carolina, is situated in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and is located 32 miles east of Asheville near the intersection of Interstate 40 and NC Highway 226 South.

Established in 1964, MTCC began as the Marion-McDowell Industrial Education Center near downtown Marion, and operated as a satellite unit of Asheville-Buncombe Technical Institute until 1967. The college moved to its current 31 acre site in 1970 and was officially chartered in 1971 as McDowell Technical Institute.

In 1979, the college's name was changed to McDowell Technical College and in 1988 to the current McDowell  Technical Community College. Although the name has changed, the process of lifelong learning has remained as its primary focus.
