The Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT) is a technical and professional school that offers practical courses and majors that lead to careers. Its students learn through hands-on experiences, labs, projects, research, and externships that give them excellent and in-depth training in their chosen career paths. Though OIT is traditionally known for its excellent engineering and technology programs, it also has programs in environmental science, business, management, and the health professions.
OIT has many campuses spread through the Northwest. Its original four-year campus is located in Klamath Falls. Site locations in the Portland Metro area are designed specifically for students who begin study at a community college and finish at OIT. There are also two additional campus locations and a distance education program, which lets students earn degrees online.
