Oregon Tech’s IDEAfest is an event intended to showcase the type of projects that students conduct during their studies at the Oregon Institute of Technology.

The event is held annually at the end of the Spring term at both the Klamath Falls and Portland-Metro campuses. It provides an opportunity for students from the different programs to share their work, as well as get to see other projects.

IDEAfest includes project posters and demonstrations. Students, faculty, family members, employers, educational and industrial partners, as well as other members of the public are invited to attend.
