What's Great About Oregon Tech
With small classes sizes, accessible faculty who get to you know by name, and a long-standing tradition of student success, Oregon Tech is a small but mighty institution that produces post-graduate outcomes that exceed some of the top ranked institutions in the country.  

Our mission is to offer programs that align your interest with industry demand, provide a practical, hands-on educational experience that employers desire, and we have a proven track record of post-graduate success.  98% of our graduates are employed or in graduate school within six months. In a time when college costs continue to rise, we rank among the top institutions in the west for graduating students with low levels of debt.  Oregon Tech maximizes your return on education with high average lifetime earnings and starting salaries at $58,000 per year.

In addition to our value and academic experience, Oregon Tech has a social scene that is quirky, fun, and doesn’t take itself too seriously.  We embrace students from all backgrounds, it is easy to fit in and find your niche, and we support you every step of the way.  Whether you enjoy outdoor activities, staying up late for LAN parties, attending high energy athletic events, playing trading card table-top games, or tinkering with your old HAM radio, I am confident that you will find the social fit that will feed into your overall success.  Not to mention, as a Hustlin’ Owl you can walk with swagger because Hootie is consistently recognized as one of the greatest mascots of all time.

I have no doubt that if you want to maximize the value of your college investment, gain the practical skills to begin a fulfilling career, and become part of a tightknit community where you will feel a part of something special and unique, Oregon Tech will be the right fit for you.
