Academics and Passion

Oregon Tech's curriculum is focused on applied technologies, engineering, health professions, applied sciences, and management. Our faculty teach the theory and the application of that theory through hands-on learning with the latest technology. Students are in laboratories, clinics, and out in the field within their first term. Faculty members know their areas of expertise because they have worked in their field and maintain those professional connections.

Small class sizes and a low student to faculty ratio of 20:1 make for an intimate learning environment at Oregon Tech. The university is a student-centered learning atmosphere where faculty teach their own classes and instruct their own labs, mentor and advise students, and provide guidance on research and externships.
