Oregon Institute of Technology

Founded in Klamath Falls in 1947, Oregon Institute of Technology (Oregon Tech) is the only public institute of technology in the Pacific Northwest. Oregon Tech provides degree programs in engineering and health technologies, management, communication and applied sciences that prepare students to be effective participants in their professional, public, and international communities through hands-on learning. Oregon Tech has a full-service, residential campus in Klamath Falls, an urban, industry-focused campus in Wilsonville, and a variety of online degree programs.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 Techs emphasis on sustainability is a long-held tradition. Home to the nations first undergraduate program in Renewable Energy Engineering, were busy becoming the first geothermally-powered university. Since the 1960s, geothermal resources have heated the main campus situated between Klamath Lake and the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Its a beautiful and environmentally-rich setting for some of the Northwests newest educational facilities utilizing green-building practices.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.
