About Oregon Institute of Technology
Oregon Institute of Technology is Oregon’s only public institution of higher education with a mission to deliver technology education throughout the Pacific Northwest. The school partner with business and industry leaders to ensure our programs adapt to new technologies and workforce demands.
The school 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.
At Oregon Tech, students find a robust university atmosphere personalized by individual interactions with professors and staff. A total enrollment of about 3,900 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 public price.
