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 the computers were outdated, the classes were simple(just desks and a dry erase board).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.
Why do people keep saying negative things about ITT tech , it does teach you a lot of things , as far as I know I'm on my way to success when I hear people talk about how its a scam , or how it doesn't teach you anything , it makes wonder what you actually did in class while i was learning all the it stuff , I remember thinking it was a scam but its not , its the fact that people get lazy and careless and decide to look up the answers and then complaining how they didnt' learn anything or how the teachers should be fired. it bugs me because , this school teaches you a lot so far I learned a little of , information system security, Sub-netting , LINUX networking , CLI ,bash ,how DHCP works , how active directory works ,DC, IPS,IDS, lans , wans , gateways, how to configure static ip's, how to script both in Linux and windows, and entering in some of how to script with routers ,switches etc. simulation for Cisco, FRAME, IP PACKETS, vm-ware , so I hope when people tell you that its a scam its NOT , I hope this encourages you to go and pay attention and learn as much as you can lead yourself . IT IS A VERY WELL TAUGHT SCHOOL DON'T BE LIKE THE REST AND LOOK UP STUFF OR DON'T STUDY ,I ASSURE YOU I HAVE SEEN IT ALL BUT I CHOSE TO LEAD MYSELF AND PURSUE MY KNOWLEDGE , because in the end it will pay off and its all about you and how you want to succeed .
For the love of everything, do not attend this school. They sucker you in by promising a career and a usable diploma. But wait, its not a diploma, its a certificate that is a useless, $65k piece of paper. Luckily, I escaped this death trap after sinking in 12k for two quarters. My first quarter consisted of two completely useless classes that are "prerequisites" for your actual major. One class is basically how not to suck at school, and the other is "hey this is a computer, did you know that?" Then comes second quarter, where it can be seen the teachers do not care at all. Class time is in two phases: lecture and then lab. The lectures are truly brilliant. The "professors" read off of a corporate generated Powerpoint, where about half way through each one they begin quickly flipping through slides saying its not important. Then why is it there?? After the astonishing presentation, they show you a few YouTube videos on what you're learning which was the final straw for me. I am not paying a corporation (key word corporation) $6k per quarter to watch YouTube videos that I can find on my own. My final project in one of my classes was creating my own website which I achieved, but only because I watched a one hour HTML and CSS tutorial that taught me more than my classes did the entire quarter. ITT Tech is a scam, all they want is your money, and they do not care. I am lucky to have come to my senses before paying a full $65k for a certificate that doesn't hold the same worth as an A.A. Save yourself time, and save your own money by simply attending your local community college and get an education that is a hundred times better in quality, for a TINY FRACTION of what this "school" will cost you. At least that degree will be useable and you have the option of even continuing your education elsewhere.
This place is the biggest scam ever. Stay away. Don't waste your money. They only want your money. They lost their most important accreditation. They no longer issue useless diplomas, yiu now get a certificate. The credits you think you've earned are not transferable. It is a pyramid scheme, only the people at the top make money. Don't go.
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.
Recently graduated from ITT and still looking,most of my job leads come from Indeed.com and what comes from my school has very little with what I attended for. I have a degree in electronics and just had an interview for a job fabricating industrial filters through a temp agency and they received my resume through the career counselor of my school. As they say "passing the buck".
HELLO FUTURE RN'S. DO NOT GO TO ITT TECH FOR NURSING!!THIS PROGRAM IS $54000 FOR AN ASSOCIATES DEGREE. THEY ARE VERY UNORGANIZED AND THEY ARE ALSO BEING INVESTIGATED FOR PREDATORY LENDING WITH PENDING LAWSUITS! TRUST ME YOU CAN FIND A BETTER 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.
I recommend you stay FAR FAR away from this school..I wouldn't suggest it to even a person I hate..This school will lie to your face promising you all these things you achieve..the people there may be nice but personality can only get you so far..I signed up for this school with the hopes and dreams to learn how to make games and do coding..and let me tell you,you will never touch any of those subjects. There books are OLD givingyo u obsolete information..it's like there stuck in a time warp..half my teachers there didn't even have a degree in the field they were trying to teach me...i mean what can a soon to be shrink have to teach me about coding? NOTHING..It felt more like a personal development class where we would just talk about ourselves and our emotions...i refused to go into debt for a school that teaches me nothing..plz plz stay far away from this school..its like someone offering a dead bird to you in exchange for money..you will learn NOTHING
I wish I had made different choices when preparing to go back to school as an adult. Yes the degree from ITT has got my foot in the door at several points along my career progression. This is due to the hard work I put into job searches. Most places I applied turned me away due to my technology degree. No one in the business world has heard of a bachelor degree in project management. Which sometimes helps when asked about it in interviews. This school is a joke in the electronics and in the business industry. The accrediting bodies don't even recognize ITT. The Project Management Institute that wrote the book the project management course uses doesn't even list ITT as an approved school. No other school will take any credits earned from ITT. The career services department has no plan to help students with any professional degree plan. They are great at finding entry level tech jobs that don't require a degree. If you want to set yourself up for success, find a good state school with available classes. If you cannot get into a four year state school, go to community college and transfer later.
