University description (as per official university website)
WyoTech, formerly known as Wyoming Technical Institute, is dedicated to superior quality, college-level, career-oriented education in the automotive, diesel, motorcycle, HVAC, watercraft, and collision/refinishing industries. Each WyoTech program is designed to provide our students with the skills they need to achieve their career goals.
Most WyoTech diploma programs can be completed in less than a year and a half. There are currently six WyoTech campuses across the country. This website is dedicated to providing you detailed information about WyoTech classes and programs.
Through the use of industry-based advisory committees, employed graduate contacts, and faculty/industry interactions, WyoTech continually upgrades and modifies programs to enhance each graduate's employability.
WyoTech's primary objectives are to impart specific knowledge and skills, to graduate each and every student who begins training, and to place them in their chosen fields. In order to achieve these objectives, the curriculum, the faculty and staff, and the facilities and learning environment become equally important.
WyoTech's curricula allow students to concentrate exclusively on learning technical skills in diploma programs or to expand their education with associate degree programs.
WyoTech prepares students for the post-graduation working world by teaching on a workday, not a school day schedule. Most students attend classes approximately eight hours a day, five days a week.
The faculty and staff respect the professional decision students have made to enter career training. We believe professionalism is as important an aspect of training as are technical and business skills. For that reason, WyoTech has established rules and regulations concerning attendance, behavior and academic performance in classrooms, labs and shops. These rules are enforced, both on campus and in housing at the Wyoming campus, and each student's grades are adjusted weekly to reflect "professionalism points." Professionalism develops a positive attitude, personal motivation, and career pride. These elements, combined with technical expertise, produce a WyoTech graduate–a skilled professional technician.
