The Institute of Technology
The Institute of Technology at the University of Washington Tacoma serves as home for the following programs:
These programs prepare students to enter the fields of computer engineering, embedded systems, information technology, information systems, and computer software design, development and maintenance. The curriculum provides students the theoretical grounding to promote lifelong evolution in the field while also preparing them to become effective innovators and entrepreneurs.
Through innovative partnerships with area companies, the Institute helps students gain practical work experience and meet continually changing industry needs. The Institute also provides services to attract and support students from diverse educational, economic and ethnic backgrounds.
The Institute of Technology was launched in 2001 through a combination of state and non-state investment. The Institute's strong support from private citizens, corporations and the community has contributed to building facilities, classrooms and labs for the Institute, enhancing what state funding provides in support of degree programs.
