Oregon Tech fall enrollment increases by 10 percent

Wilsonville campus, now in its second year, a big factor


School officials at the Oregon Institute of Technology announced recently that with the start of fall 2013 student enrollment has reached 4,414, which is the highest in the university’s history. The total represents an increase of 413 students from the same term in 2012.

This year’s growth includes the new Wilsonville campus that began admitting students in 2012. The increase also reflects demand for specialized polytechnic degrees.

“We are very pleased to see an increase in our fall enrollment,” said Chris Maples, Oregon Tech president. “Students and parents alike recognize the tremendous value, national reputation and exceptional return on investment that are the hallmarks of an Oregon Tech degree. Our small classes, hands-on teaching and undergraduate focus have been the keys to our success and reputation to date.”

Oregon Tech boasts a 95 percent success rate for students in their careers after graduation or continuing their education in advanced graduate or professional schools.

“Students know that our faculty and staff care a great deal about their success, and this year’s enrollment increase also reflects that recognition,” Maples said.

Additionally, Oregon Tech has received recognition for its work from US News & World Report, Forbes, PayScale and numerous military publications.
