ITT Technical Institute Reviews - Bachelor's in Electrical Engineering - CLOSED
Review of Electrical Engineering Bachelors Degrees
I received a great hands on education from professors which were as good as any in state colleges. I found an engineering position right after college graduation and continue to have a great position. The financial department made it clear at all points what the costs would be.
This school was not that bad, but I got to say don't go. The programs were in good intention, but there were a lot of questions unsolved.The prices for the semesters were ridiculous and the theory made everything look like roses, but when it was "LAB" time, all you got were the thorns. the computers were outdated, the classes were simple(just desks and a dry erase board). the only way one was to pass these classes were with YOUR own research and YOUR own study time, because the teachers were not going to help you one on one. since it was obvious that they had a life and were not going to waste it on you. they tried to bribe us with pizza, but you would think with all the money we spent we should have a buffet everyday. OMG and they took away our coffee maker. a 50 dollar cheap o coffee maker...i would have bought one myself, whats the problem...anyways. no, I would suggest keep going to your local community college or a real university. at least with a university you would get what you paid for. Oh, and one more thing I'm still unemployed..>( thanks a lot ITT. I was better off as a bartender.
The Electronic Engineering program at this school is a very well-developed program. The countless classes offered provide students with fantastic opportunities to pursue the things they love regarding developing Electronic projects. Instructors at ITT Technical Institute of Seattle are all concerned for the well-being and success of each student and are all willing to work with students in order to help them reach their full potential. Projects I developed while I was a student in ITT Technical Institute are: 1_ Wireless Home Control System. 2_ I2C communication Master and Slave PCBA Control. 3_ Robot Arm Control using C++ programing. 4_ PCBA design I got a lot out of this school. Lets me out it this way If you want to get to what you want listen to the instructors and do all the homeworks even if the instructor skip it. I love this school.
ITT Tech is a trade school. It's not, and probably never will be an accredited college. When you get your diploma and go out into the work force trying to land a job you will find out that employers do not look at ITT as a Univeristy and you will be told that they're not looking for applicants with a trade school diploma!! 4yrs and $30,000 later it was too late for me! I finally landed a job and Best buy repairing small laptops and TVs. That was over 20yrs ago. I've heard not much has changed at ITT except they offer more classes. I eventually went back and earned a real accredited bachelor degree from Devry University and that got me into the door a of a great company making a 6 figure income.
Financial Aid was great, I only owed $25 000 when I graduated. I'm a Engineering Technician level 3 with a global semiconductor corporation. 30 000 employees. Living in the Southbay, working in the Southbay. I even got the CEO award for outstanding performance. Not bad for a former Bartender.
I graduated from ITT in 2014 with a BS in EE with a 3.5 gpa. This is school is not accredited with the ABET so real Engineering jobs won't even consider you. I have dozens of no thank you emails for engineering. I even got denied from the government 6 times and I'm a veteran. This school will make you an over qualified technician or an under qualified engineer.
Itt-tech got me a Job 2weeks, before I got my AS degree. Now that I think of it, I don't know of anyone that didn't get a job, that was in my class. 2013 class Richardson TX Now that I have my bachelor's Degree I am looking for a better paying employer.
I thought ITT was a decent school. Yes some of the instructors were garbage but its like that everywhere. If you put the time in you can learn. ITT helped me get a job in my field before I graduated. I feel like I know just as much as the UCSD grads. The whole $10 an hour thing is BS, I got a job after my AS degree making $21 with benefits. Its about how you sell yourself. Because no matter what school you go to you still have to go to the interview and get yourself that job.
I would choose electronic engineering again.
If your a veteran this is a great school for you because it is year round and you don't miss out too much with you GI benefits. As you know if your not in school you don't get paid.
