Campus entrance

Oregon Tech is located just East of the Cascade Mountains in South Central Oregon. From the North, it takes about five hours to drive to Klamath Falls from Portland, and just over three hours from Eugene. From the South, it takes about five hours to drive from Reno, and less than three hours from Redding, California.

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 geothermally-powered university. Since the 1960's, geothermal resources have heated the main campus situated between Klamath Lake and the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. It's a beautiful and environmentally-rich setting for some of the Northwest's newest educational facilities utilizing green-building practices.
