About Oregon Institute of Technology
Oregon Institute of Technology offers rigorous, practical education emphasizing the application of theory for real-world solutions. Students of OIT have exciting opportunities for hands-on learning through labs, projects, externships and research guided by faculty who retain their professional connections to industry. Early on, students actively apply theory in the laboratory setting, in the community, and in addressing some of society's greatest challenges. OIT programs lead to rewarding careers in health professions, renewable energy, environmental science, information technology, engineering, business and management.
OIT 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 heal...th management.
OIT'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. The Village for Sustainable Living opened its apartment style residences to students, an exciting expansion of OIT's vital campus life. The Martha Ann Dow Center for Health Professions now includes a second wing of teaching labs and classrooms with leading edge technology.
OIT locations throughout the Northwest include the traditional four-year campus in Klamath Falls with a diverse student body of freshmen, transfer, graduate and international students. Four locations in the Portland Metro area offer degree-completion programs for transfer students or for freshmen who start at a community college and finish with OIT through a dual enrollment option. OIT Seattle and La Grande offer specific degree options, while OIT's Distance Education program delivers a variety of programs online. OIT welcomes you to its close-knit community of world-ready students.
