ITT Technical Institute Reviews - Bachelor's in Network Security - CLOSED
Review of Network Security Bachelors Degrees
Excellent instructors and course material. ITT prepared me well for a career in the IT space and opened many doors for me. In addition, ITT is flexible with work schedules so that someone taking care of a family can still get a great education. I have had nothing but positive experiences with ITT.
I went to ITT and got my Associates and my Bachelors, the tuition is high but worth it. I am a Cheif Technology Officer of a WEB base company and I also design VOIP and computer networks for another company. One thing that I learned through out life if you want to succeed you have to put in work. A lot of my classmates said they didn't learn anything at ITT, but they didn't study either. I studied and built my on small network at home and practiced on it all the time. Teachers are not going to grab you by the hand and show you everything, you got to want to learn and strive to be the best at what ever you do. My teachers saw I was thirsty for knowledge, and they all worked with me and they all help me get my career off the ground. I now also serve on the Program advisory committee board at ITT. ITT education is basic, it is up to the individual to advance their knowledge.
I had wanted to get my bachelor's degree, yeah, wished I had done more research before attending ITT. I had an associates, so only 2 years to complete the bachelor's. I am now graduated, with no job prospects, no help from career services, and $70000.00 dollars in debt. Yes, $70000.00 for 2 years.......and the interest will only grow. I had one employer tell me the degree was worth no more than toilet paper, it was not recognized. I did graduate with a 3.75, and I thought since I was an older student, it would be easy to find a job, I was wrong. I could have attended an Ivy league school for a doctorate and still would have been cheaper. THANKS for nothing!!!!
ITT was a great place to go to school. I had great instructors that really got to know each student and work along side them. With that and all the hands on labs, I felt like I got a great education.
All they care is your money nothing else. Don't waste your money and time. The dean and director are good for nothing. Please stay away form this school, you end up pay more loans.
I graduated from ITT Atlanta with a bachelors degree in 2012 in Information Systems security. I agree that ITT is expensive, but you can attend any college and end up with the same results as far as job placement and so on.
Shortly after I graduated, I found my own job through a world-wide employer with an entry level position as a System Administrator. I didn't like the career services at my campus because they will expect for you to take any job they through at you. I feel as if you are determined enough, you will find any job you want after graduation.
I attended ITT in 2010 shortly after leaving another for-profit school and based on a friend's recommendation. The staff was friendly, and because I was using my GI bill, I wasn't worried about costs so much. The adviser said that at ITT tech you don't take any Math, English, History etc. courses like other schools..You just focus on your degree. I was excited about this but then it turned out to be a play on word and was not true..you take a math class, but it isn't called College Algebra MAT110 or anything like that like most community colleges and state universities. They have a specific name for it but everyone in all majors take the same exact math and english class even if you are very good at math and english..I don't recall a placement exam, though.
Another turn off about the school we're the people who attend. The parking lot where breaks are held are dirty, and smelled like weed all the time. They recruit anyone they can to bring their numbers up. Oh, and if you miss class, they call you to find out why just like in high school. Why? Because for-profit schools get paid per student, per attendance. So they want money. Why do you think state colleges don't care if you skip class?? I'm so glad I read review boards just like this one sooner then later.
I left about three weeks after attending ITT Tech simply because it wasn't a good fit and my friends who were going to state universities URGED me to go elsewhere or said they'd give it the benefit of the doubt lol. I went to a community college instead, and now i'm finishing up my bachelors degree at ASU in the same field I wanted.
