The Universal Technical Institute (UTI) is considered the premier school in the U.S. for mechanical training. Founded in 1965 in Phoenix, Arizona, the school has branded itself under many different names and spread across the country in a campus-based school system.
UTI operates under the brands Universal Technical Institute (UTI), Motorcycle Mechanics Institute (MMI), Marine Mechanics Institute (MMI) and NASCAR Technical Institute (NTI). It is recognized as the mechanics industry’s top choice for technician training.
One of the core components of UTI’s education is the often-exclusive partnerships it holds with product manufacturers worldwide. Companies like Honda, BMW, Ford, Harley-Davidson, NASCAR, and Mercedes-Benz provide state-of-the-art vehicles and technologies to the students at UTI for practice and training. Often, students go on to work for one of the partnership companies after graduation.
UTI has locations in Arizona, Florida, Pennsylvania, Texas, California, and more. The Motorcycle Mechanics Institute has locations in Florida and Arizona, and the NASCAR Technical Institute and Marine Mechanics Institute are located in North Carolina and Florida, respectively.
