"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."

"I am very happy with the education I received and I had no problem getting job offers after I had my degree. Those that complain about the cost are being unfair to ITT, yes they are expensive but it is not hidden - you see and have to sign off on the cost. If it's too much for you, go somewhere else. Also, I have met many students that complain about job opportunities after receiving their degree but a degree does not entitle you to a job. Getting a job is not just based on education, it takes drive, networking and good sift skills. The teachers I had were great and qualified instructors, most of which are now teaching at top name colleges. I don't know the specifics of what the government says ITT is fraudulent in but it seems they are getting unfair treatment based on an abundance of naive people who think they can skim through getting a degree and be handed a $100K job without working for it."

"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 the computers were outdated, the classes were simple(just desks and a dry erase board).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."

"ITT Tech is like anything else in life. You get out of it what you put into it. I graduated in 1999 from Houston campus. We had some excellent teachers, and we had some OK teachers. There was a very high dropout rate because many people underestimated the commitment necessary to graduate. It isn't a cheap solution, and it doesn't guarantee a job. I graduated 16 years ago and I am now making around 6 figures. Here is what I got for my money: 1. debt - this will happen with any school. If you don't commit to the school and dropout, you will get debt without a degree - not smart. 2. job - After graduation, I spent 2-3 months looking for a job. ITT helped me work on my resume (they also help you find a job while attending school as they don't want you to drop out). ITT provided my resume to employers (Employers contact ITT for recent graduate lists). ITT helped me with interviewing skills, and I got my job through this placement service provided by them. 3. Hands-on experience. I work with a lot of Electrical Engineers, none of them know Electronics like I do. EET doesn't immediately make you an Engineer, it makes you a Technologist. You can develop into an Engineer, you can develop into a consultant, or you can immediately become a technician or Field Service Engineer. 4. Balanced education - They have Written and Oral Communications classes as well as Success Orientation classes. This isn't vocabulary or English 101. This is how to communicate effectively and interpret other's communication. This is where many other schools fall short. 5. Future job help - contact your local office. Tell them where you graduated. They will help you. If you have worked hard and have a good resume, you will get another job in your field. ITT isn't a get-rich quick method. It is a service you can buy that will give you a way to find a career, as long as you completely commit and try really hard. If you don't graduate, all you get is debt. You need to work very hard or else you are wasting your time at any school."

"I went to ITT years ago. Although it was expensive I did gain a lot out of it. OUR graduating class started with 100+ students but 15 graduated in my class. I Am currently working in one of the most respected companies in the WIRELESS industry now, over 15 years. Straight out of school ITT placed me in a Military contracting company specializing in Microwave systems. I mention this because, what you get from a school, work or the military is what you put into it. We also had a teacher who was not cutting it, the students took action and requested a new teacher, the school responded and replaced the teacher immediately. I had hard time getting to class and was put on academic probation several times. BUT I managed to get my butt moving and get it together. Yes some companies don't recognize this school, In my opinion your resume, how you carry yourself, back up your skills and handle interviews nails you the job. It's you."

"Half way through my degree they closed it down and forced me into another degree. They also expelled me for missing 9 days classes due to medical and refused to except my docters notice of absence. They also took loans out under my name and esigned for them without my knowledge. If you are concidering itt tech as your college of choice it would be cheeper to just go to a state university or community college. I know owe close to $100,000 in student loans for a degree that was taken away thanks to corporate greed."

"I will never recommend this for profit college! They never let you know how much they cost, they never let you know their classes DONT transfer, I have yet to find a job in my field of study and I graduated at the top of my class! ITT is a waste of time and money, their degrees are worth less than Toilet paper that has been used!"

"This place is a huge lie. They barely teach you anything and pass you even if you're not really getting the parts they do teach. Job placement is a joke and their stats for the same are lies. Trying to get jobs yourself doesn't work because employers won't touch you. Accreditation is done by an organization that is really only there to accredit fraud schools like this one. Ruined my financial life. Don't do it!"
