"Okay, where to start. Well my fiance and I went to this school to just check it out. Well the lady trying to get us to join, was basically shoving the school down our throats to join that day and made me feel rushed. My fiance joined that day, but I waited later that week because I had to talk to the head person. After talking to the head guy, she was talked into it down. After talking with another recruiter, I joined. I should have went with my gut and not joined. Honestly I didn't learn much from the teachers, and basically this could have been a online class. Saying this because all the "teaching" was literally online.. To sum it up don't go here, it is not worth it. But the teachers were nice, I'll give them that."

"I attended this school hoping I would learn a few things about Internet security. I did, but also accrued over $20,000 in debt, which wasn't worth it in the least. They gave me a computer for all my troubles and it even included Widows. However it was a pirated version, which tells you a lot about the school itself. If you're going to go into debt for school, it might as well be legitimate. I switched to Linux. You might want to do the same thing. Instead of going to this school just learn it on your own."

ITT tech north-houston - 8/27/2016
Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014
"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 the computers were outdated, the classes were simple(just desks and a dry erase board).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 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"."

"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."
