Owl together for Student Success!

Expanding reach.

Students like Rowan Parker, a junior in the Software Engineer Technology program, are spreading their wings and expanding their reach through hands on projects, enriching classes, and exciting internships.

Exceeding expectations. 

Others like Mark French, a senior in the Mechanical Engineering program and scholar athlete, are exceeding expectations while reaching new milestones!

Exceptional academic programs. 

Student and Faculty cross discipline projects, like the Air Quality Impact on Hospital Burden project, are having a positive impact on our communities now.

Oregon Tech's mission to prepare students for rewarding health, engineering, business, technology, and applied arts and sciences careers is unwavering. In the midst of a global pandemic and unprecedented wildfires, the need for our graduates is even more evident. In the spirit of championing student success this #GivingTuesday we're inviting you to generate a wave of generosity and community engagement felt throughout the University and beyond.

#GivingTuesday is an opportunity for Owls everywhere to stand together in unity while using your individual power to remain connected while demonstrating our commitment to student success. Thank you and Go Owls!
