Established in 1947, the Oregon Institute of Technology (Oregon Tech) is an institution founded on the principles of excellence through hands-on knowledge. We believe in giving students a rigorous, practical education while applying cutting-edge concepts for real-world solutions.
As the Pacific Northwest's only public institute of technology, we take pride in our mission to deliver technology education. We continually partner with industry leaders to ensure that our programs and classes are at the top of the board with adapting to new technology and preparing students for workforce demands.
This real-world focus gives our students a competitive edge: 90 percent are employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation. Year after year, our baccalaureate graduates earn excellent starting salaries. We also attribute this to our dedicated professors, who provide personalized attention and are genuinely invested in their students' learning. A total enrollment of about 4,000 allows for an intimate campus environment distinguished by small classes and a student-to-faculty ratio of 20:1. This personal approach provides many benefits of a prestigious private education at a p...ublic price.
Our individualized and applied approach to teaching, which blends theory and practice, is the main reason our alumni are so avidly recruited. Whether they study software engineering, vascular technology, management, or dental hygiene, Oregon Tech students have amazing opportunities to apply what they learn in lab-based classes, clinics, externships and workplaces. This practical focus is reinforced in the classroom by instructors who come to Oregon Tech with relevant business, industrial, or clinical experience.
And in every program, major studies are underscored by a general-education core that broadens students' understanding of the world and teaches them to communicate effectively, solve problems and think for themselves. Oregon Tech is best known for its traditional engineering and technological core, but new degree options (and surprising twists on old ones) are remarkably multi-dimensional. A Geomatics student might use GIS technology to survey an archeological excavation, or a Mechanical Engineering student may complete a cross-disciplinary application in sustainability. A Communication Studies major might compile a technical manual for an Oregon Renewable Energy Center project. Information Technology and Health Informatics or Management students might specialize in allied health management.
Oregon Tech's emphasis on sustainability is a long-held tradition. Home to the nation's first undergraduate program in Renewable Energy Engineering, we're busy becoming the first geothermally-powered university. Since the 1960's, geothermal resources have heated the main campus situated between Klamath Lake and the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. It's a beautiful and environmentally-rich setting for some of the Northwest's newest educational facilities utilizing green-building practices.
Oregon Tech, a public, state-supported institution belonging to the Oregon University System, is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. Individual programs also are accredited by the appropriate professional organizations.
