Shane F. - 10/29/2016
Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 1996
"I attended ITT in 1995-96 and studied AutoCAD. I had a great experience at ITT and recommended it to many people over the years. The instructors were very knowledgeable and I learned more than I ever expected. My course of study covered all the mathematics, theory, lab work, and a few social and economic courses that were required. The school was accredited at the time I attended, and all of my credits transferred to a 4 year university that I currently attend to obtain my Masters Degree. I have heard people say that ITT credits don't transfer, but that is not correct. When I graduated, I was highly sought after and was offered many top positions in tech companies as a designer. It has served me well over the years and I owe it to ITT Tech. I understand that an education can only get you so far, but ITT gave me a great foundation to grow from. From reading some reviews, it sounds like some graduates expected to walk right into a job paying 60k a year. That can happen, but it's not a realistic expectation. Every individual is different, and they must continue to pound the pavement until they find a job. Just because you graduate from college doesn't mean you are guaranteed a great job right away. I have many friends who also attended ITT and they are all doing very well. Granted, they aren't all working in their field of study, but ITT gave them a platform in which to get their foot in the door somewhere."

"My experience was positive. Prepared me very well for a career in factory automation. I have been employed from the day of graduation with great pay. I have enjoyed a great career and my skills seem to be always in demand. I attended the campus in Fort Wayne, IN."

"Positive experience. Always have a job with a valuable skill. ITT provided me the tools and core knowledge to start a career in robotics. Pay is good and plenty of jobs. My student loan reached $24,000 which I paid off within 5 years. Had a job prior to graduation working for a high tech company in Robotics."

Graduation Year: 2014
"After reading through some of the reviews I can agree with some of the problems listed. I transferred to ITT Tech from a 2 year community college where I was studying construction engineering. I believe that reading, writing, math and sciences are all a good base for any program of study, but why was I required to take theater arts and human anatomy/physiology for construction engineering and not as electives, I was putting in 100% effort and making mediocre grades with people under qualified to be instructors. When I transferred to ITT tech I took it upon myself to research the job opportunities in the work force and told them what I wanted to do. First: My student coordinator. She helped me through every aspect of the registration and throughout my stay at ITT. She made a personal effort to answer any questions I had. If she didn't have the answer right away she immediately found the person with the answers and responded ASAP via phone or email. Second: Financial aid. Finaid sat down with me and helped me through the finaid process they were able to find me 4 scholarships (2 of which I had to maintain a 3.75 PGA to keep) a Pel grant which I had to maintain a 2.0, and finally a student loan (which, because of the scholarships and pel grant, I didn't need and chose to send back to the lender) making the total I have to pay back to the lender less than 6K$ after I graduated. Without the research I did and the help from finaid I would have owed 20K$+. Third: Career services. Career services at ITT works for the student only if the student utilizes the Career Services Resources. I checked in on career services regularly and by the second term I was placed with an engineering company, since then I've hired on and am currently making 125K$+ annually. Fourth: the Instructors. the instructors at ITT tech have standards they have to meet to be able to teach there but are kept to a strict curriculum maintained by the school. Many of the Program chairs at that school have masters degrees and have been teaching there for several years. I found my program chair (also the teacher of many of my Program classes) to be very knowledgeable. The general ed classes were structured around the program so I didn't have to take gen ed classes that I didn't need for my program of study. Finally; Gen ed classes. I agree that the gen ed classes are way to easy but I have also noticed they are structured around an understanding of the subject not an in depth study. The gen ed courses are designed so that if you fail you actually have to try to fail. That being said the campus administrator explained that each program of study was to give a general knowledge in the career field he or she was going into. I did go to that school with a lot of students that didn't put any effort into their education and are reaping the rewards for their effortless ventures. I stayed on top of the elements surrounding my education from this school I researched a career field that offered a good placement after graduation, stayed on top of finaid to get the best education offered for the least amount of money I would have to pay back. and made every effort to utilize the services offered by career services to find the best work I could get to support my family. In a nutshell, if you enroll in any school and don't put forth the effort to stay on top of your education but instead let the school do all the work for you than you'll be rewarded in the same way. During orientation each student was informed that their effort would determine the outcome of their stay at ITT tech. this school and the program directors are worth the money if the student puts forth the effort to achieve his or her education to the fullest."
