Graduate Success Rate

The statistics and figures listed in the Graduate Success publication are based upon the Career Survey administered by Oregon Tech's Career Services Office for the graduating class of 2012-13. The success rate is calculated as the percentage of survey respondents who are employed, continuing education, or inactive within six months after graduation. Those who are inactive are not seeking employment for a variety of reasons. Average graduate salaries encompass all alumni within a given discipline. These results are from a survey conducted between Dec. 20, 2013 and Jan 14, 2014.
