Oregon Tech Campuses & Partnerships
One Oregon Tech, reaching throughout the Pacific Northwest
Established in 1947, Oregon Tech offers degree programs at locations throughout the State of Oregon (and beyond!) to meet the needs of students seeking a top quality, hands-on education.
The main, residential campus is located in Klamath Falls in beautiful Southern Oregon.
Our campus in Klamath Falls is nestled on the eastern slope of the Cascade Mountains. The 190-acre campus offers spectacular views of Upper Klamath Lake, pine-studded knolls and snow-capped peaks from nearly every building. Whether you’re preparing and administering radio-pharmaceuticals, testing the highway-speed electric car (PEPE) out around campus, or trekking up the O-trail to check out the school decal, the Klamath Falls campus blends beauty with a perfect outlet for project trial runs.
Oregon Tech's emphasis on sustainability is a long-held tradition. Home to the nation's first undergraduate program in Renewable Energy Engineering, we're busy becoming the first geothermal-powered university. Since the 1960's, geothermal resources have heated the main campus. It's a beautiful and environmentally-rich setting for some of the Northwest's newest educational facilities utilizing green-building practices.
Klamath Falls, a city of about 20,000 residents (45,000 in the urban growth area), is located in south-central Oregon, about 20 miles from the California border. Known as Oregon’s “City of Sunshine,” Klamath Falls enjoys about 300 days of blue skies each year.
Wilsonville (Portland Metro)
Oregon Tech's urban campus is located in Wilsonville, 18 miles from downtown Portland. The Wilsonville campus is designed to provide an industry-focused educational experience at the heart of Silicon Forest.
Oregon Tech serves students and employers in the Portland metropolitan area by offering degree programs at the Oregon Tech Wilsonville Campus and the Willow Creek Center (WCC) in Beaverton. Oregon Tech’s high-demand BS and MS degrees are accessible to traditional full-time students, community college transfer students, working professionals, and busy adults by offering day, evening, weekend, and online courses.
This campus allows students to work with robots in a Robotics and Vibrations lab, calibrate photodetectors and learn quantitative radiometry to measure visible light, and even serve others by bringing electricity to Tanzanian villages.
Since 2005, Oregon Tech has partnered with Oregon Dental Services to provide North Eastern Oregonians the opportunity to obtain an Associate of Applied Science degree in Dental Hygiene. A bachelor's degree is offered on the main campus in Klamath Falls and via online through Distance Education.
Our sister university Eastern Oregon is located in La Grande, and it too is a member of the Oregon University System.
Partnership is an Oregon Tech core value. We appreciate the opportunity to work with other educational institutions and the business community in preparing our graduates to lead, achieve and succeed in the real world.
The bachelor degree program in Salem is a partnership between Oregon Tech and Chemeketa Community College. The classrooms and dental hygiene clinic are in Chemeketa's state of the art Health & Science Building. Dental hygiene classes are taught on the Chemeketa campus with an occasional mix of online learning. Students learn and practice dental hygiene skills in the campus-based clinic where they see patients.
The program requires one year of prerequisite (pre-dental hygiene) coursework prior to entry into the professional program. Enrollment in the professional program is limited to 20 students. Enrollment in pre-dental hygiene courses is open to anyone meeting Chemeketa admission requirements.
Oregon Tech also offers programs in partnership with The Boeing Company in Seattle.
Classes are offered on site in Everett, Renton, and Frederickson (Composites only). Classes requiring laboratory facilities may be held at local area community colleges with Oregon Tech instructors.
At Oregon Tech, we understand that working professionals like you are busy and anxious to advance your education as quickly and conveniently as possible. That's why we offer a growing number of degree completion programs through online delivery.
Distance education lets you finish your certificate, associate, bachelor, or master's degree without leaving your home or office and without the hassles of travel, childcare or giving up your current job.
Courses at Oregon Tech are taught through the Internet, allowing you to receive and submit assignments and interact with your instructors and classmates through your personal computer. Most of your "class" time will be spent reading and responding within the online "classroom" environment through focused discussions and email.
Distance education classes are generally taught so you don't even have to be at your computer at a given time. Your instructors will provide a structured learning experience with deadlines to help you keep on track, but will offer you a range of time in which to complete your assignments. Classes run about ten weeks in length, followed by a final exam period.
