Student & Graduate Reviews (24)
When I was at Wyotech it was the greatest experience of my life. The teachers are great and are very good at what they do. People will see Wyotech on my resume and see that I am a hard worker and am passionate about what I do. I definitely recommend that you go to this school.
I was so excited when I started at Wyotech. I did not stay excited long. I had instructors just give answers to the test because they did not want to teach it. Instead of helping when I needed it they stood around making bets on the next time I mess up. The job out come was a lie my resume gets laughed at for having Wyotech on it. I have been working in the medical field just to make ends meet for the horrible loans that I can not even get transcripts for. read your loan contract well they will get you there. I really don't recommend this school anything is better. Every job fair while I was there I had put I Applications and had at least 2 interviews and in all my classes I tried hard was class and shop leader studied. I have a family to support and can not hardly do that because of the loans. I just hope if anyone thinking of this school really looks in to it and ask questions to many people have been royally screwed by this school.
I enjoyed the school and the teachers. I was always in the top 5 of my class. Many people hated the school due to the strict rules and dress code, but I did not mind it. It is a school for those who are willing to give their all. If you're looking for a party spot as you go to school then Wyotech is not for you! The one thing I regret about the school is that I did not have my own project car to bring in and work on, so I just got all the odd job projects in the shop, but it gave me a wider range of stuff to learn from in cassis fab. The school offers job fairs and a ton of extra certificates you can work to get. I left the school with 6 certificates, and a job that paid $26 an hour. I then joined the navy as an aviation mechanic and received a 4 pay grade advancement dou to my past college with Wyotech. After I got out of the navy I got a job paying $45 an hour. The interviews told me the main reason I was hired was because of the skills I have learned at Wyoming tech! The school will help you find a job in many ways if you try! And they will help you find grants and loans to pay for the school and very low rates. My loan was at 1.5%. You can't ask for much better then that. After grants and scholarships I was left with $20,000 in loans. But I had them paid off in 6 years. It would have been sooner if I did not join the military, because I took a pay cut joining.
Very good school, I miss this school taught me a lot more than being a tech. I wish I could go back and learn more have work though. I like way the course are set up. I was scared to leave my parents home and go to wy but when got there I every one was nice I had friend at school and friend's at church one of the experience in my life
I went to Wyotech in Laramie and it completely ruined my entire outlook on wanting to be a mechanic. The teachers are great people and great friends. Great teachers they aren't. The school is a joke. Please do not make the same mistake I did. The administration makes it their goal to make you as uncomfortable as possible. You are forced into shaving no matter what your medical condition is. Please don't consider Wyotech unless you want to be depressed and miserable for a minimum of 9 months.
This place is the worst place you can go. When an representative talks to you about joining this school don't do it it's nothing but a load of crap. It has been the worst experience and decision I have ever made. Plus the schools instructors are not the best people they try to avoid you when you are working on an engine. Besides that if you do make the decision to go here, you are doing it at your own risk.
I graduated top of my class, and for the 30k I paid for my education, it was not worth my salary. I have always worked in automotive, but needed that paper saying I was educated, but my salary did not change. I was getting $10-12 an hour offer.... can you imagine working and supporting a fame with 12 an hour.... I left this occupation and work in sales where I make more money. To me this school is about making money, I regret attending school with wyotech and look forward to getting more in debt and attending a higher education.
If you apply yourself and try the school will teach you the basics. The elective classes on the other hand will teach you a lot. Mine was chassis fabrication and I make good money on the side welding. Just 2 months into my job I was promoted to lead tech because of the skills I learned at Wyotech. as far as cost goes it really is to much money my loans total $50,000 and when signing up I was informed it would only be 29,000. The core class not enough information electives are really hard but in the end they are an amazing learning experience.
I was there when a group of the best teachers were let go. Big mistake. The equipment we learn on is destroyed and never works. The teachers care and try to make due with what they have. It costs to much money to go here. No one will hire Wyotech grads. Talked down to by office people.
This is the worst school I have ever been to, that is saying a lot I have 5 degrees and one of them is a teaching degree. The reasons why I would not attend this school are as follows. One, the teachers in this program are new, I realize but as far as teachers or professors go they are terrible. Two, to be hired as a professor at Wyotech you do not need any sort of teaching background. Three, there is way to much information for the students to attain in a very short nine month period. Lastly, being a private school it is very very expensive. Now, the two teachers Mr. Bowers and Mr. Slaughter that taught this program need to be fired immediately. After being threatened by one of the and demoralized by the other. I would not give even one star to this so called school. It is in my opinion that students wanting to attend this Tech school or any other due there due diligence and check out all of their option before making his or her decision!!!!!
